Each summer Hawaii Performing Arts Festival brings together an outstanding faculty of internationally recognized performers, directors and teachers with a select group of aspiring music students from all over the world for an intense study and performance program.

In 2014:





Attend HPAF July 5-27, 2015

Set in the unique and inspiring location of Hawaii’s Big Island, students are closely coached as they prepare to participate in Hawaii Performing Art Festival’s series of Masterclasses, concerts, recitals, and staged productions.

Hawaii Performing Arts Festival changed my life. I have become a better singer, actor, dancer, and person thanks to the faculty I’ve worked with here. This festival showed me that I could do what I love and make a career out of it, as well as preparing me for my career. I owe the festival so much for teaching me how to be a performer.
