On Friday at 7:30 pm, enjoy a series of cultural dance performances led by guest choreographer, Sammay, from San Francisco.

Jazz musicians will also take the stage.
On Saturday at 7:30 pm, University of Hawai’i Maui College Jazz Band Director Mike Lewis will conduct performances by King Kekaulike High School’s Na Ali’i Big Band and Maui’s Chop Suey Jazz Orchestra.
