At Hawaii Youth Symphony (HYS), we aspire to make music a right, not a privilege, so that we can empower children everywhere with the joy, skills, and character-building that music-making uniquely provides. Over 100 of the state's finest high school musicians comprise Youth Symphony I, the top orchestra of Hawaii Youth Symphony. Under the baton of the organization's newly appointed music director, Dr. John Devlin, Youth Symphony I will perform music of local composer Michael-Thomas Foumai, masterworks by Beethoven and Shostakovich, and in a very special opportunity, with the exquisite talents of Na Hoku Hanohano award-winning and Grammy-nominated artist, Raiatea Helm. Established as a nonprofit organization in 1964, Hawaii Youth Symphony annually serves over 700 students, ages 7-18, through music-making programs for beginners through advanced performers. Our students perform in settings from string quartets to full symphony orchestras, band, and jazz ensembles. This season, HYS students represent over 100 public, private, and home schools spread throughout Kauai, Oahu, Maui, and Molokai.
