Louise Keali'iloma King Lanzilotti

Louise Keali‘iloma King Lanzilotti comes from a multi-ethnic background that has informed many of her beliefs. Her experience covers artistic, educational and administrative areas of the arts. As a conductor, she has been the musical director for many musicals in the past thirty years. In 2010, she founded Kalikolehua – El Sistema Hawai‘i, a free orchestra program for children from underserved neighborhoods, focused on transforming lives through music. She was the Managing Director of Honolulu Theatre for Youth for ten years (2001-2011), guiding it to greater stability through creative solutions and extensive partnerships. She served as Curator of Education at the former Contemporary Museum for thirteen years (1988-2001). Lanzilotti taught for over twenty years in public, private and alternative schools K – 12, developing a method of writing music and plays with students, which solidified her understanding of the importance of arts engagement for all.

  As part of women's history month, I'm focusing on women conductors today, and possibly next Tuesday. Although I include women in my general output for Classical Pacific, it's wonderful to be able to spend an entire program on them alone. Some of today's featured conductors will be Marin Alsop, Emmanuelle Haïm, Sarah Hicks, JoAnn Falletta, and Eve Queler.

 A listener who enjoys sharing the program with her grandson asked if I might do a program on animals. So, here it is. I haven't focused on animals as an inspiration for composers for a while. You'll hear music by Schubert, Telemann, Vivaldi, Stravinsky, Handel, Rimsky-Korsakov, Rossini, and possibly more.

"A rose by any other name would smell as sweet." Join me for a final day of presenting works of Classical music with interesting or unusual names, which sometimes come from the composer, sometimes the publisher, and sometimes from classical fans. You'll hear music by Mozart, Birtwistle, Shostakovich, Dvorák, Anton Rubinstein, Chopin, Beethoven, Vivaldi and Mendelssohn.

  Many works of Classical Music have associated names beyond just what type of pieces they are, and it can be interesting to see how those names came about. For a second day, I'm playing works with interesting titles or nicknames, and I'll give you a little information on them that might be useful as a conversation starter! By the way, Happy Pi Day.

Today on Classical Pacific, musical works identified with nicknames or memorable titles. Sometimes the title identifies the intent of the composer, and/or is named by the composer. Sometimes the work gains a nickname that the composer had nothing to do with. From Jokes to Raindrops to Spinning, the possibilities are endless. I may include a small quiz!

  Today I'm playing new releases, mostly from 2019, with a few slightly earlier. There's still time to vote for your favorite Classical Stars on the HPR website - perhaps you'll hear a new favorite on today's program!

  As part of my ongoing mission of introducing listeners to composers from every era and style, I often choose a theme based on a seemingly random focus - today it's John "Do", music by people from various places and periods whose names are John, Johann, Johanna, Jean, or who may be anonymous, and whatever else I've drawn from the HPR Music Library and my own library. There are so many to choose from!
