Contributing to our Community
HYS’s orchestras perform an average of 24 concerts statewide per year. All are open to the public, and half of them are offered free-of-charge, including multiple Listen & Learn educational concerts for 10,000 students. HYS firmly believes in making quality music accessible to our communities, especially our children. Community concerts not only allow HYS to showcase its young musicians, they also instill in performing youth a sense of civic responsibility and the value of service-learning. HYS takes its music to underserved populations including areas on the neighbor islands, convalescent and retirement homes and community health and human services facilities.
