Family-friendly Open Mic at UH Maui College, open to public
Call for participants, community invited to UH Maui College Open Mic
KAHULUI, Hawaii - Those looking for an opportunity to share a talent, a message or an act are invited to the UH Maui College Music Club Open Mic on Thursday, November 16, 5 p.m. at the campus Multipurpose Room, Pilina Building.
This sought-after event has provided a venue for students, faculty, and members of the community for a chance to play an instrument, perform poetry or stand-up comedy, dance, act, sing or share a hidden talent in front of an audience.
The family-friendly, moderated event has been popular for the past six years as there is no age restriction for performers and is free. Talents are encouraged to arrive early to sign-up and light refreshments will be provided.
The Open Mic will kick off with a performance by special guest, traditional and contemporary Hawaiian music group Kuikawa.
Keiki ensemble Maui Music Mission from West Maui will also perform.
UH Maui College’s Institute for Hawaiian Music students, students and faculty from performing arts classes, as well as members of the Music Club are also expected to share special performances. Some games and crafts for the keiki will also be available.
“Today’s variety in the entertainment industry has opened a wider range of possibilities and opportunities,” said Karyn Sarring, advisor to the Music Club. “If you know anyone who has a unique talent, or someone who would benefit from the experience, please encourage them to attend.”
The Open Mic is the culminating activity for UH Maui College’s International Festival, celebrating the college’s inclusiveness and diversity in culture. Various events are scheduled throughout the day such as a parade of flags, Japanese obon and K-pop dances, Chinese Dizi and Erhu performances, an ukulele workshop and learning Spanish songs. An ethnic food sampling is also scheduled from 11:30 - 1 p.m. at the Multi-Purpose Room.
The International Festival is brought to you by the UH Maui College International Education Committee, International Club of Maui, and Maui Language Institute. For inquiries, call (808) 205-1241 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
