Ukranian pianist Dmytro Choni, Thursday
The Dallas Morning News described concert pianist Dmytro Choni’s as a “major talent to watch” and his performance as “sophisticated and natural.” Pizzacato Magazine praised his phrasing, lyricism, and “perfect control of dynamics.”
Fresh from a third place finish in the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition this year, Chonic is performing at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center Thursday, Oct. 27, at 7:30 p.m.
The talented Ukranian who will be playing pieces from Prokofiev, Debussey, Scriabin, Silvestrov, and Liszt, took home the bronze at the Van Cliburn competition, this at a time when he has had to cope with a Russian invasion of his country.
He has said publicly that art should transcend politics and serve as a way to unite people.
Besides his award at the Van Cliburn competition, he has garnered top prizes and awards at, among others, the Paloma O’Shea Santander International Piano Competition in Spain in 2018, the Leeds International Piano Competition in Great Britain in 2021, and the Bösendorfer USASU in 2019.

Protest singer Raye Zaragoza, Wednesday
Protest folk singer Raye Zaragoza whose Standing Rock song “In The River” has drawn national attention, performs at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center Wednesday, Nov. 2 ,at 7:30 p.m.

It has the emotional power of Liko Martin’s call for unity in “All Hawaiʻi Stand Together.” “Woman in Color,” Zaragoza’s second album, delivered powerful messages about embracing one’s own identity and discovering the power behind it, all across brisk, emotive, compelling folk melodies.
Zaragoza emboldens listeners to be all that their beautiful individuality entails in “Running With the Wolves” and “Rebel Soul.” All ticket sales are online only at MauiArts.org.
