He has led clinics and performed his music around the world. Following a two-day workshop, singers from around the Big Island will perform original compositions and choral arrangements composed by Hayes.  The concert will feature Mark playing a set of his original piano compositions. Two years ago the audience responded enthusiastically to the music of Mark Hayes. $15 for all seats.


Mr. Hayes will be holding a two-day workshop focused on the art of choral singing, through the preparation of seven of his compositions:  Friday, February 16, 6 – 9 PM and Saturday, February 17, 9 AM – 5 PM at St. James’ Episcopal Church in Waimea. The compositions will be performed in a culminating concert on Sunday, February 18 at 4 PM in Kahilu Theatre. In addition to the choral music, Mark Hayes will give a solo piano performance of his compositions. In 2016, singers from around the island joined in the workshop and had a wonderful weekend.

Note sessions to get familiar with the music will be offered Saturdays February 3 & 10 at St. James’.
