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.

Today, chance favors the prepared mind. I will be choosing works in a somewhat random order from the left end of various shelves. If I have played one of the choices recently, I choose another CD to the right. The HPR library is large and varied, allowing me to choose excellent works even at random. Enjoy!

HPR is using the widest possible "definition" of genre, including everything from periods (like, Classical, Romantic) to specific smaller categories of music (like fugue, film music, musical theatre). I will be focusing on many possible "genres" for the rest of the month.

Today on Classical Pacific, composers that you may not have heard before, or that you don't hear often. I'll be choosing from works by Deifenbrock, Boismortier, Bristow, Ireland, Taneyev, Farrenc, Rebel, Parry, Crusell, Vosburgh, Kuhnau and possibly more.
