The Atherton Studio seats 60 to 75 people and is home to a magnificent Bösendorfer concert grand piano. The intimate performances are like sitting in on a private studio recording session, and the shows themselves are taped for re-broadcast on our live music show Applause in a Small Room hosted by our sound engineer Jason Taglianetti.
All concerts are on Saturday evenings at 7:30 pm unless otherwise noted.

Traditional grand opera is comically characterized by big violent scenes and jumping from great heights, but more recently especially, introspective, psychological operas are winning new audiences. Hawai‘i Opera Theatre’s latest production, Three Decembers, could do just that. HPR’s Noe Tanigawa reports the production will bring one of opera’s most beloved performers to four Hawaiian Islands.
Award winning pianist Hiromi Uehara has been playing since age six. A chance meeting in Tokyo with jazz legend Chick Corea set her on a trajectory that took her to number one on the Billboard Jazz Album chart last year. HPR’s Noe Tanigawa reports Hiromi will be at the Blue Note Waikiki this week, performing her unique combination of jazz, pop and classical music from that album, Spark.
