Marines announce free holiday concert

U.S. Marine Corps Forces Pacific and BAE Systems, in partnership with the Chamber of Commerce of Hawaii, are scheduled to hold the fifth annual Na Mele o na Keiki (Music for the Children) Holiday Concert at Hawaii Theatre at 2 p.m. Dec. 2.

The event will feature the U.S. Marine Corps Forces Pacific Band performing holiday favorites with a variety of guest artists, including Henry Kapono, jazz singer Ginai, ukulele player Aidan James, jazz/blues guitarist Chris Vandercook, Hawaiian musicians The Abrigo Ohana, and latin/salsa musicians Son Caribe.

This concert is presented free of charge and is an opportunity to help support the Marine Corps Reserve’s Toys for Tots Hawaii collection effort.

Marines will be on hand to accept donations of new, unwrapped toys or cash. Every toy and every dollar collected to purchase toys stays in Hawaii to make the holidays brighter for Hawaii’s less-fortunate children. The Salvation Army is once again working with more than 100 local charities to distribute the donated toys.

Free tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis at the Hawaii Theatre box office, 1130 Bethel St. The box office is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Doors will open at 1:30 p.m. the day of the show.
