Skyline Eco-Adventures Hosts Oldest-Ever Zipline Participant

Skyline Eco-Adventures Hosts Oldest-Ever Zipline Participant

Skyline Eco-Adventures, Hawaii’s award-winning zipline company and operator of the first zipline course in the United States, recently hosted its oldest-ever zipline participant at its Haleakala location.

Nels Gerhard Glesne, a 98-year-old Maui resident, completed all five lines of the course, which includes towering eucalyptus trees and a swinging bridge in beautiful upcountry Maui. Glesne, who was born in 1916 in Aberdeen, South Dakota, is a World War II veteran and retired forester. He moved to Maui in August 2013 and has three daughters, one son, seven grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. He was married for 69 ½ years.

“I am the luckiest man alive – a cat has nine lives, and I’ve had 11,” said Glesne, who also plays tennis regularly.

Hawaii Symphony Orchestra Takes On Gershwin and Beethoven In April 26-27 Concerts

 Hawaii Symphony Orchestra Takes On Gershwin and Beethoven In April 26-27 Concerts

HONOLULU – The Hawaii Symphony Orchestra welcomes pianist Sara Davis Buechner and conductor Maximiano Valdés back to the Islands for a program of Gershwin, Beethoven and Ravel on Saturday, April 26, at 8 p.m. and Sunday, April 27, at 4 p.m. at the Neal Blaisdell Concert Hall. This will be the third program in the HSO’s Spring 2014 Halekulani Masterworks Series.

Buechner, who may well hold the world title for having the most piano concertos in her repertoire (more than 100!) and is noted for her interpretations of American and jazz-influenced works, will perform George Gershwin’s Concerto in F. More of a traditional, although jazzy, piano concerto than his earlier Rhapsody in Blue, which was actually orchestrated by fellow composer Ferde Grofé, the Concerto in F showcases Gershwin’s own mastery of orchestration.
