While in Oahu I had the opportunity to see two great, though very different, performances by the Hawaii Symphony Orchestra (formerly the Honolulu Symphony). The first was part of their "music that Pops" series and was "Disney in Concert". They had four amazing vocal soloists who were beautifully accompanied by the orchestra. The best part is they encouraged people to... More

I had never heard about the guest conductor at the Hawaii Symphony concert I attended last week, but I will never forget him from now on. Some maestros are robotic. Not Junichi Hirokami.

I've enjoyed their special guest concerts, like Burt Bacharach and Marvin Hamlisch. Their new name is the Hawaii Philharmonic, I believe. The old company had too many financial burdens.

We thoroughly enjoyed a concert. Note there are no places within walking distance to have a drink before the concert and the prices and plastic glasses at the theatre don't do it for me. The quality of the orchestra is exceptional. Sound in the hall is also excellent. I am so happy we got tickets. It was a special night... More

During a brief holiday where we took a cruise around the islands last year, we had the time to attend the beautiful Blaisdell centre and hear a performance of Mozart by the HSO. We were greeted on the steps by a chorus group performing for patrons before the concert began, which we thoroughly enjoyed. Once inside we were impressed by... More
