Hawaii Youth Symphony

President’s Message

Dear HYS Families and Supporters:


t is a great privilege and honor to have all of you here, in support of Hawaii Youth Symphony and our 32nd Pacific Music Institute. Through close interactions with caring faculty, chances to learn through observation and personal experience, making friends and trying new things, PMI is a wonderful, magical place for youth to develop themselves and their musical aspirations. I attended as a 7th grader, and the experience was transformative. Not every child will become, or want to become a professional musician, and at Hawaii Youth Symphony, we celebrate this. Our aspiration to make music a right, not a privilege, is directly related to our mission to develop every student to her or his fullest potential. The activities of PMI are geared with the student experience in mind. From instrumental workshops that focus on the development of technical skills, to chamber music, masterclasses, large ensembles, private lessons, and extracurricular seminars, the past two weeks have been filled with ways for students to take full advantage of our faculty’s expertise and passion for teaching. Many PMI faculty, teaching fellows, and students gave back to the community by performing free outreach concerts. Our 21 string quartets from the SSQ program performed for retirement communities at Arcadia, 15 Craigside, Kahala Nui, and One Kalakaua and the Adelphi Quartet visited students at the Boys & Girls Club’s NFL-YET Nanakuli Clubhouse. I am very proud of what PMI has accomplished this year, and am grateful to all of you for your generous and gracious support. I can’t thank enough our Board of Directors, our administrative team, our students and families, and all of our other stakeholders for their loyalty and trust. I am also very grateful to our major corporate sponsors—First Hawaiian Bank Foundation and Sky Waikiki/Top of Waikiki—for their sponsorship of PMI, and to the Hawaii Symphony Orchestra, our hometown heroes, for their support of the Festival Orchestra. Finally, a mahalo to IDAGIO, the premier streaming service for classical music, for its assistance in providing additional resources to our faculty and students. Last but certainly not least: A hearty congratulations to our students on a job well done! Aloha, Randy Wong, President Hawaii Youth Symphony
