MAKING MUSIC IS A RIGHT, NOT A PRIVILEGE
The HYS’ mission is to help youth develop to their fullest potential through orchestral music, in the setting of our Islands' unique culture.
HYS welcomes students ages 7-18 from all islands, and beyond.
From beginning classes to our top Youth Symphony I orchestra, HYS offers a wide range of music making opportunities.
Explore activities by summer season and academic season; we are active all 12 months of the year.
HYS is just part of a richly musical community. Learn about our partners, who also make Hawaii home.
