Jazz in the Forest continues with two performances (4:30pm & 7:30pm) on Saturday, October 24, and will feature Keahi Conjugacion with Volcano Art Center’s Jazz Ensemble. The Jazz in the Forest concert series offers an extraordinary opportunity to hear the highest caliber jazz – anywhere – up close and personal.
Keahi is a Hoku and Grammy nominated vocalist that has performed throughout the mainland, Asia and Europe. Considered one of Hawaii’s finest jazz & blues singer Keahi is the eldest sister of the famous Conjugacion musical family (Brother Noland & Tony C). She has played Carnegie Hall in New York, Jazz Alley in Seattle and Jazz Festivals in Sicily. She returns by Popular Demand as she delivered an emotional and inspiring Performance to a SRO audience in her previous appearance at Jazz in the Forest.
The Wine and Beer Room will be open for attendees to enjoy before and after the concert.
And as usual, an area has been set aside for dancing, so you don’t have to stay in your seat when the band starts to swing and you’re moved to your feet.
Two shows will be offered, with a matinee at 4:30pm and an evening performance at 7:30pm. Tickets for the matinee are $15 for VAC members ($20 non-members) and for the evening show are $20 for VAC members ($25 non-members).
Tickets are available for sale at VAC’s Administration Office in Volcano Village, VAC Gallery in Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park, and at Basically Books in Hilo. The last day to purchase tickets online, at VAC Gallery, or Basically Books is Friday, October 23. After that, tickets will be sold at the door if they are not sold out. Tickets will be held at Will Call on the day of the show. OR, you may pick them up any day before the show at Volcano Art Center’s Niaulani Campus Administrative Office, Monday through Friday, 9am-5pm. Get ‘em while they’re hot!
