2021 - 2022 SEASON
The Maui Youth Philharmonic Orchestra is currently working with small ensembles and is planning for our 2022-2023 season beginning in September 2022. We are looking forward to collaborating with the Kamehameha Schools Maui Hawaiian Ensemble, performing music arranged by Mr. Siuai Laufou in December 2022. Please fill out our contact information form so we can let you know when classes and rehearsals will begin. We are looking forward to rebuilding our full orchestra, violin, and cello classes, and continuing our small ensembles.
