For Immediate Release

The University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo Choirs, Kapili Choir and University Chorus, join to present Spring Fling, a concert of choral favorites, on Saturday, May 9, 7:30 p.m., at the First United Protestant Church in Hilo.

UH Hilo's Director of Choral Activities, Amy Horst, says, “Spring Fling honors a world-wide, centuries-old tradition of beautiful choral music, performed in venues well suited to a choir's unique acoustical needs, and featuring composers both local and from far away. Local composer Michael Springer's beloved arrangement of Waika leads the concert into music of many lands and languages.”

Spring Fling also welcomes the tenor and local voice teacher Mark Sheffield to the stage. Along with a solo number of his own, he will lead the Kapili Choir in the classic “Ain't Got Time To Die.” Walter Greenwood, Hilo's own pianist, organist, and band leader, as well as the pianist for the UH Hilo choral program, will perform original improvisational works on the piano.
