It’s all about “ain’t” when Kauai Voices, the island’s highly popular choral ensemble, presents Ain’t That Great Music!, its 11th season concerts on Friday and Saturday June 17 and 18 at 7:30 PM and Sunday, June 19 at 3 PM at St. Michael’s Church in Lihue.

“The entire show is comprised of music using the word “ain’t” — and we ain’t kidding about that!” said Kauai 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 theme of this show began with a simple question: “I wonder how many songs use the word ‘ain’t’…  I looked into it and there were a lot!”

Kauai Voices will be accompanied by the incomparable pianist Monica Chung and a talented instrumental ensemble, including a second set of hands on the keyboard for a special 4-handed piano accompaniment on one of the songs.  Leonard, a choral director and soloist with more than 35 years of experience, noted that due to increasing demand for tickets, Kauai Voices will continue to offer a third performance as a Sunday matinee.

Kauai Voices is a not-for-profit 501-c-3 organization, which present two seasons a year with 20-40 auditioned singers each season.  Men and women, from ages 8-80+, rehearse for 16 weeks and deliver a program of excellent choral music each season, to promote fine choral music in our community.
