Hawaii Youth Symphony Broadcasts | 2020


In light of current public health concerns, music performances have been cancelled in Hawai?i and around the world. To keep the music going when we most need it, HPR and Hawaii Youth Symphony have partnered to offer rebroadcasts of performances from recent seasons. 

With the motto of "Making music is a right, not a privilege," HYS helps youth develop to their fullest potential through orchestral music, in the setting of our islands' unique culture.

These performances will air Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on HPR-2, your home for classical music. Ways to listen & station locator.
