City Awards Grant to Hawaii Youth Symphony


Mayor Mufi Hannemann has awarded a $5,000 City grant to the Hawaii Youth Symphony for its 2007-2008 season.


            The mayor said, “The Hawaii Youth Symphony is the top provider of orchestral music education in the state.  The symphony’s ability to offer programs that advance the intrinsic value of music and other life skills is outstanding.  The City is proud to play a role in the development of the future artists and caretakers of Honolulu.”


The mayor is scheduled to present the grant to Hawaii Youth Symphony officials on Sunday, April 13, at 5:00 p.m., at the Neal Blaisdell Center Concert Hall, during a spring concert featuring the Youth Symphony I and Youth Symphony II.


The grant provides support for the production of at least 11 performances as part of the Symphony Orchestra Program, which runs from November 2007 to May 2008.  In addition, the grant will support workshops and the Summer Strings Program and Pacific Music Institute.


The grant to the Hawaii Youth Symphony was appropriated by the Mayor’s Office of Culture and the Arts.  The Hawaii Youth Symphony will serve 600 students ages 8-18 and reach more than 16,000 audience members during the season.
