Mānoa Arts & Minds

Aloha! Mānoa Arts & Minds, a four-strong entity partnership—involving the UH Mānoa Department of Art & Art History, Department of Music, Department of Theatre & Dance, and Outreach College—kicks off 2010 with a year packed with the best of art, music, theater, dance and special performances at the flagship UH campus.

If you missed out in 2009, February and March bring additional good reasons to spring home to Mānoa, as we showcase a unique medley of music, theater and art.

Music credit: Warm aloha to Hawaiian slack key guitarist Ozzie Kotani for the music heard in the Mānoa Arts & Minds announcements. Ozzie is an alumni and former music instructor at UH Mānoa, and "Ka Ua Noe" (The Misty Rain) is from his 2009 CD titled "Hōʻihi" (Respect).
