Kids get tutelage in how water works
The city government’s getting involved with this year’s children’s summer reading program, "Make a Splash @ Your Library," with its own aquatic presentation.
The Board of Water Supply will present "Learn About Water and the Water Cycle" at 2 p.m. tomorrow in the meeting room of the Aiea Public Library, located at 99-143 Moanalua Road.
Arthur Aiu, the board’s community relations specialist, will conduct the one-hour program, which will include a question-and-answer session, and is suitable for all ages.

Chaminade hosts ‘Orinda’ recital
"Orinda," a highly regarded early music trio featuring mezzo soprano Jennifer Lane, lutenist David Tayler and harpsichordist and recorder player Hanneke van Proosdij will perform a recital of love songs from the late 16th and early 17th centuries at Chaminade University tomorrow evening.
The recital will feature "airs de cour," a style of songwriting in which the principles of Greek poetry were applied to French, and the works of the English composer John Dowland and anonymous Scottish composers.
Lane, an island favorite, has been praised for her clear tone and sophisticated phrasing. Tayler and his wife van Proosdij are members of the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra in the San Francisco Bay Area and many other groups. They have recorded widely as soloists and in ensemble.
The group is visiting from California this week for a series of workshops and performances. The free concert is at 7 p.m. at Mystical Rose Oratory on the Chaminade campus.
