About Hawaii Performing Arts Festival
Now preparing for its fifteenth season on the Big Island, Hawaii Performing Arts Festival brings together some of the most talented young musicians from Hawaii, the U.S., Canada, Asia, Africa, the Middle East, South America, and Europe to Hawaii Island between late June and early August to study, grow, and perform with professional musical performers/teachers. The results are astonishing.
During the 2018 Festival weeks — June 26 through July 24 — more than 20 concerts and stage performances were presented, giving the students invaluable experience and the privilege of appearing on stage with some of the top musical artists in their field. Performances are held around the Big Island and on Oahu.
In the months between Festivals, HPAF offers performances ranging from An Evening at the Stork Club held at Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel to intimate house concerts featuring favorite artists.
HPAF is a non-profit organization whose mission is to promote the appreciation and advancement of classical music and musical theater, to offer a world-class music training and performance program in the inspirational setting of Hawaii, and to improve the education and elevate the spirit of all who participate, especially the local community.
