The Chamber Music Olympics

Talent. Drive. Artistry.

A NEW SPECIAL CONCERT SERIES

To continue Season 3, HCMF will launch the Chamber Music Olympics! With this unique and innovative series, we will celebrate the culture and legacies from different countries through music. Led by Founder, Chris Yick, HCMF will feature many of today’s finest young artists paired with internationally acclaimed performers.

Much like the Olympic Games, each musician brings their unique story and different background. Our musicians will represent nations all over the globe such as USA, Taiwan, Korea, Japan, and more. Each concert program will also represent countries of European influences.

The Chamber Music Olympics will be dedicated to Honolulu native and band teacher, Zachary Morita, as we celebrate his accomplishment of winning a $100,000 to start his own Niu Valley Music Olympic Invitational.
