Today's program was inspired by the Hawaiian Oboe Legacy project of J. Scott Janusch. Scott has been performing with the Hawai‘i Symphony Orchestra for many years and wanted to leave a legacy to the people of Hawai‘i. He chose to created a project involving the making of a kauila wood oboe that will be left in the care of the non-profit Live Music Awareness to be shared with Hawai‘i. Next Monday, May 20th, at the Doris Duke Theatre, Chamber Music Hawai‘i celebrates the instrument's completion with its final concert.
