2021: ENCORE VIRTUAL FUNDRAISER
We invite you join us and celebrate the potential of our youth, generations of whom have had their lives transformed through HYS programs and their first encounter with music. Especially in these times music is a bridge that connects: it engages communities; it brings people of all ages together; it creates pathways for youth for their academic and social-emotional growth. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic Hawaii Youth Symphony has continued to reach out to more students and families from diverse populations as we strive to fulfill our vision to Make Music a Right, Not a Privilege.
Pre-recorded at the Halekulani and televised, the event will feature performances by HYS students, world-renowned entertainers Jake Shimabukuro and Amy Hānaialiʻi, and collaborative performances with junior orchestras from Hawaii’s sister cities in Japan!
Television presents an incredible opportunity to introduce the HYS mission and showcase our performers to a broad audience. HYS is partnering with Hawaii News Now to produce this special one-hour television event.
Interview segments will share student success stories with viewers and remind them of the importance of music education. HYS relies on the generosity of supporters like you to further our mission while navigating new times. We appreciate your consideration of sponsorship of this year’s event. Your contribution will go towards breaking down barriers like financial hardship, access to qualified music teachers, and the high cost of instruments.
