.About Us

The orchestra is diverse, with musicians from around the world who are also, as its Web site and a recent brochure remind concertgoers, athletes, chefs, pilots, dancers, and sports fanatics.

The program for this season is just as diverse as the orchestra. In its pops music offerings, the orchestra brings a modern swing repertoire to programs that might include anything from a classical Mozart Symphony to an appearance by Grammy Award-Winning Elvis Costello.

The orchestra also celebrates the Hawaiian music and tradition and recognizes some of Hawai‘i’s own musicians in concert or as opening attractions. On November 4 and 5, it dedicates a whole evening to “A Tribute to IZ,” Israel Kamakawiwo‘ole, “one of the most-fondly remembered Hawaiian music artists and composers in the islands” (Web page).

The Honolulu Symphony has been around for more than a century, and it has established itself as one of Hawai‘i’s best entertainment, educational, and cultural resources. Not only does it give concerts, it also is committed to the community, as is shown by its schedule of special Youth Concerts and its visits to schools around the island, which gives students a more intimate experience with the art of music.

“ There is nothing like music to give flight to the imagination and wings to the heart, to renew and inspire us, to touch our deepest emotions, and to take our breath away” said JoAnn Falletta, the artistic advisor for the symphony.

So give your imagination a chance to fly this season and go to one of the many concerts that the Honolulu Symphony is offering.

It might be a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
