Escape the cold of an Iowa winter with Clarke’s A Night in Hawaii, our annual Arts at Clarke event that explores cuisine and cultures from around the world. This year’s event takes place on Wednesday, February 15 beginning at 6:30 p.m. 

Attendees will enjoy music from the Clarke Ensembles, as well as special guests, the Lanakila’s performance group in Jansen Music Hall. Since 1991, Lanakila’s has brought the best in Polynesian entertainment to audiences around the world. From Japan, Korea, Mexico, Germany, England, and beyond, they have performed the songs and dances of the South Pacific in over 100 countries.  

“Lanakila’s performance is a celebration of Polynesian culture, music, dance, costumes and stories,” said Joe Klinebriel, Professor of Drama at Clarke University and one of the organizers of A Night in Hawaii. “Clarke is proud to present educational opportunities through the arts to people throughout the Dubuque community.” 

Along with the program, guests will enjoy Polynesian cuisine served in the Wahlert Atrium as part of an appetizer and dessert menu curated by Clarke University Dining Services.  

The Arts at Clarke Series hosts musical programs, theater productions, gallery shows, and more throughout the year at Clarke University. The series is graciously endowed by Edward J. & Cathy Gallagher. See a full list of Arts at Clarke events at
