They presented a wonderful variety of music and arts displayed.
This was especially delightful since it was in the outdoor gardens of a private home. The music presented showed the vast contrast of performers in Kona. There were youth, opera singer, flute and keyboard with ancient and modern Hawaiian, and a variety of lovely music from around the world and centuries.
Helen Beljean is bringing out the talents in our small community.
She was also very inclusive of other musical organizations by introducing them and allowing for announcements.
Just a lovely Sunday afternoon to enjoy music and make new friends.

Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I would appreciate this organization becoming a central head quarter for the arts. Keeping tabs on all the arts that are happening as a community calendar. If we could all go to one central place to check what is already planned for a day we are performing. this would help us to not duplicate or complete. and maybe even use a space of performance in conjunction with others.
