Residency Partnership Program

The story of Pāka’a

Paka'a image 1.jpg

Chione will share the musical story of Pāka’a Lanakila, a little boy living in Hawaii, composed by Hawaiian native Jon Magnussen. The ensemble will engage children by intertwining musical learning, storytelling and American Sign Language. Participants will use these signs to interact with the music throughout the piece as they listen for and identify each theme with the appropriate signs in context. This 45-minute story time program can be enjoyed by ALL ages, from babies to children at heart.

Chione is honored to have been chosen as Chamber Music America Residency Partnership Program grant recipients. We will share our program with the communities in Northern Minnesota and Northwestern Wisconsin. The Residency Partnership Program supports professional ensembles and presenters in building audiences for classical, contemporary, and jazz chamber music through residency projects. The program funds activities that take place in community settings and that are not part of a regular concert series.
