Coralie Matayoshi
Tuesday, February 3, 7:30 pm

She’s been a trial attorney, the Executive Director of the Hawaii State Bar Association, and is currently the Regional Chief Executive Officer of the American Red Cross, Pacific Region. But Coralie Matayoshi still works to live within her means, as she was taught by her parents, and likes nothing better than to curl up with a good book.

Henry Akina
Tuesday, Jan. 27, 7:30 pm

With only a piano, a conductor and some lights, Henry Akina founded an opera company in Berlin in 1981. Under Henry's direction, the fledgling Berlin Chamber Opera grew into a successful venture. Now, as Artistic Director of Hawaiʻi Opera Theatre, Henry Akina has presented Hawaii with The Mikado, Madame Butterfly and other visually stunning productions. Whether it's with a small company in Berlin, or on a grand stage in Hawaii, Akina's respect for the art of opera remains the same.

This month, Hawaii Arts Alliance is recognizing Henry Akina with its Alfred Preis Honor, for his commitment to arts and arts education in Hawaii. PBS Hawaii congratulates him on this honor.
