"Hawaii has always been my home. In a place where most people call paradise, I’ve met incredible musicians, mentors, and heroes who have inspired me to pay it forward to the community. This is why I created the Hawaii Chamber Music Festival (HCMF). I am very grateful for the many opportunities I’ve had growing up and the experiences to come. I truly believe Hawaii is a hidden gem for talent, specifically young, aspiring artists. The greatest fulfillment as a rising musician is seeing how music can benefit a community. HCMF will always dedicate its efforts to exposing local talent and showcasing world-class artists. In doing so, we hope to bring people together and work with others to shine the aloha spirit that is vibrant in our local culture and community."
