Mele Kalikimaka from HYS!
Celebrating the spirit of the season, Hawaii Youth Symphony (HYS) has recorded a special rendition of R. Alex Anderson’s holiday classic, “Mele Kalikimaka.” Arranged by HYS alumnus Michael-Thomas Foumai, the music is performed by HYS students in the Symphony+ online learning program—all playing in sync from their homes. A video of the virtual performance can be enjoyed via Hawaii Youth Symphony’s social media sites @HiYouthSymphony, and at the following link beginning Tuesday, December 22: https://youtu.be/TYQa1Asm0Mc.
“We know this year has been challenging, and we hope to make spirits a little brighter as we head into the holidays and a hopeful 2021,” said Randy Wong, HYS president. “This beloved song, together with the inspiring talents of our students, offers a joyful way to share the healing power of music and the magic of the season.”
