Vivace! The 12th Annual Oʻahu Choral Society's Gala Banquet and Silent Auction will be held on Saturday, April 6, 2013, at 6:00 pm at the Honolulu Country Club.
The proceeds from this event will be used in support of the Honolulu Symphony Chorus for the 2013/2014 season. This is our only fundraising event of the year, and an important source of the funds we need in order to continue to provide top-quality choral music to the Honolulu community. Enjoy an evening filled with elegance and fun, including great choral music from the Honolulu Chorale and HPU International Vocal Ensemble, jazz music featuring the Joshua Kaye Trio, and (as always) amazing auction items, great food and a couple of surprises!
