TOGETHER, WE CAN MAKE MUSIC A RIGHT

Our Mission is to help youth develop to their fullest potential through orchestral music, in the setting of our Islands' unique culture.

YOUTH

HYS welcomes youth ages 7-18 from all islands and beyond. Interested youth of all levels, and nearly every instrument, have a home in our programs.

ACCESS

Over 110 public, private and home schools are represented annually; including neighbor islands, Wai‘anae-Nānākuli, and Windward O‘ahu.
Thanks to our donors, need-based financial aid funds support youth throughout HYS.

COMMUNITY

HYS is just part of an incredible Hawai‘i. Learn how partnerships advance music’s role in our communities, and support our drive for social change.

EXCELLENCE

As youth progress through HYS, they develop into the best versions of themselves. HYS undertakes artistic collaborations with heroes and renowned artists to provide students with role models and mentors.

CONCERTS

HYS performs FREE concerts throughout the year—even virtually. Our students and faculty bring heart and soul to every note; a joy to see and hear!
