Welcome to Hawaii Youth Symphony, the islands’ only statewide instrumental music education program, for children ages 7-18. Our mission? To advance critical and positive links between music study, academic achievement, and social emotional development with programs that service youth through orchestral music education, performance opportunities, and community engagement.
I commute weekly to Oahu for rehearsals and private instruction… I thoroughly enjoy the demanded pursuit of perfection. HYS has taught me life lessons due to the excessive travel on my own… In the symphony, I have been educated that if you do not continue to improve you will be left behind… HYS has been a very prominent stepping-stone in my life.
