A Special Luncheon
Maestro Henry Miyamura’s final concert with Hawaii Youth Symphony will be the Aloha Concert Luncheon on May 7, 2017. “That concert is typically a time we say ‘aloha’ to graduating high school seniors, and this year, the concert will also be our opportunity to say ‘aloha and mahalo’ to Maestro Miyamura,” Ing said. “It will be an emotional concert for many in our community. It will be hard to see him retire, but we all recognize Henry deserves a great retirement.” “We are indebted to Maestro Miyamura for laying a great foundation for Hawaii Youth Symphony. It is privilege for all of us — the board, conductors, parents, volunteers, students and other supporters —to build on his legacy,” Ing added.
