   The Hawai‘i Symphony Orchestra is launching a sparkling new season this Saturday.  Solid classics, talented soloists, and intriguing programs are all part of the new mix, along with a fun loving pops season and performances across the state.   HPR’sNoeTanigawa reports.

The Hawai‘i Symphony’s new season opens this Saturday and Sunday, September 26 and 27th, at the NBC Concert Hall.  

Find out more about the "Taste of Symphony" concert this Wednesday, 9/23.

Find out about the season opening concert featuring Respighi's "Pines of Rome" and "Fountains of Rome" this Saturday at 7:30 and Sunday at 4:00.

HSO Concertmaster Iggy Jang in a light hearted conversation about the piece he will perform in the opening concert, Piazzola's "Four Seasons of Buenos Aires," and more.

Education efforts are among the first priorities for the strengthened Hawai'i Symphony.  The HSO has partnered with Hawai'i Youth Symphony and applied for Midori’s 2016 residency. Midori only selects two symphony/youth symphony groups each year, and HSO/HYS was one of them.  The residency includes masterclasses, workshops, and a performance with each organization, planned for April 2016.

The Hawai'i symphony is privileged to have JoAnn Falletta as Artistic Advisor.  The New York Times calls her one of the finest conductors of her generation, in demand internationally for her vivacity and control.  She is also Music Director for the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra and the Virginia Symphony Orchestra.

Maestro JoAnn Falletta offers a sentence or two about every concert in the upcoming Hawai'i Symphony season, a great way to plan your subscription.
