It’s all about “ain’t” when Kaua‘i Voices, the island’s popular choral ensemble, presents Ain’t That Great Music!, its 11th season concerts on June 17 and 18 at 7:30 p.m. and on June 19 at 3 p.m. at St. Michael’s Church in Līhu‘e.

“The entire show is comprised of music using the word “ain’t” — and we ain’t kidding about that!” said Kaua‘i Voices Artistic Director Randy Leonard, who has collected music from multiple genres to create a show that ain’t soon to be forgotten.

The auditioned choir of more than 30 voices will treat audiences to songs of ragtime, spirituals, musicals, pop, jazz, rock/blues, swing and choral classics. According to Leonard, the show’s theme began with a simple question, “I wonder how many songs use the word ‘ain’t’… I looked into it and there were a lot!”

Kaua‘i Voices will be accompanied by pianist Monica Chung and an instrumental ensemble, including a second set of hands on the keyboard for a special four-handed piano accompaniment on one of the songs.

Leonard, a choral director and soloist with more than 35 years of experience, said due to increasing demand for tickets, Kaua‘i Voices will continue to offer a third performance as a Sunday matinee.
