Testimonials from Guests

“Attending Na Mele lifts my spirit and I wish that I could bottle it’s magic and have it year-long. I enjoy the energy and comradery of the professional musicians who perform with the Youth Symphony and sharing this evening with our friends. I am delighted that this joyful event gives me an opportunity to support a mission I believe in.”—Mary W.   “This is my favorite event of the year. The young musicians are absolutely wonderful, and the evening is always fantastic! It is much more fun and celebratory than other fundraisers, and I always leave with a good feeling in my heart. If you love music, this is the gala to go to!”—Anonymous
