Carolan’s Concerto

We organize a Gala Concert to celebrate Jonathan’s years as President.

Yay

The concept is to have lots of different pieces including ones from each of the countries from which the students who will graduate tomorrow, come. In between music, people get up and pay tribute to Jonathan. It works well.

The real thing

Cecilia Lu is an amazing person. She is a neuroscientist at the university and also a concert pianist. She assembles a group of amazingly talented musicians from Japan and Taiwan.

Cecilia plays a duet.

There are two Irish graduates and Hokulani, the university orchestra, play Carolan’s Concerto in their honor.

All in all a great evening in a packed auditorium.
