Maui Ukulele Festival 2009

The 2009 Maui Ukulele Festival was held outdoors at the beautiful Maui Arts and Cultural Center on Sunday, October 18th. An impressive lineup of musicians filled the venue with ukulele music for the afternoon. I had the honor of photographing the event for the MACC and am grateful for the opportunity to capture great moments in time with musical talent.

Ukulele master, Roy Sakuma, and his wonderful wife, Kathy, put hours into organizing the events across the state of Hawaii every year and they always impress us!

We enjoyed the music of many masters of the ukulele...

Hula halaus performed their graceful dances to the music...

Ukulele bands from around the island came to perform on the stage.

Our mayor, Charmaine Tavares, was also on hand to present the MACC and Ukulele Festivals Hawaii with a proclamation.

Thanks so much to all the musicians, dancers and volunteers that made the event happen without a hitch.
A hui hou,
