Sunset Jazz

unset Jazz 2014 was a huge success! The annual benefit concert, held on Sunday, September 14 in honor of La Pietra's 50th anniversary celebration, drew approximately 400 guests to the Guest Lawn for a delightful evening of music under the stars. Hosted by Shari Lynn and Jimmy Borges, the concert featured an amazing line-up of guest performers including the Sunset Jazz All-Stars, PBS Big Band, Piranha Brothers, and La Pietra students Jaresha Gladney '16 and Amanda Apa '16.

In addition to the wonderful music, guests enjoyed wonderful wine from Johnson Brothers of Hawaii and Young's Market Company of Hawaii, delicious cookies provided by Archipelago Hawaii, and sumptuous desserts prepared by Eberhard "Chef Hardy" of Michel's at the Colony Surf. Chef Hardy also created a spectacular selection of pupu platters for guests at the Louis Armstrong Tables; others enjoyed Chef Hardy's gourmet picnic baskets.
