75th Anniversary – Pearl Harbor

Yesterday, I attended the Hawai‘i Symphony Orchestra’s “Pearl Harbor 75th Commemoration Concert” at Blaisdell Concert Hall.

Uncharacteristically, I came prepared with my sketchbook (but ended up drawing on the program) and 3 pens (a felt-tip Sharpie, ballpoint, and rollerball). Although my vantage point was perfect––a sweeping view of the crowd and orchestra from the balcony, the lighting was not as great. Sketching the bright stage scene in near total darkness was a challenge. I soon opted for a loose, less-detailed approach.

A wonderful evening of music and education (provided by host Howard Dicus) with families and service members in attendance.
