I'm exhilarated to announce the launch of Hawaii International Music Festival, thrill of the senses!  I have been closely collaborating with Co-Founders Eric Silberger (prize-winning violinist of Tchaikovsky International Competition XIV) and Amy Shoremount-Obra (Metropolitan Opera soprano), spearheading a series of unique, experiential concerts, entwining classical music with Hawaiian culture, food, and coffee.  I'll be photoblogging and curating the journey, from Volcano National Park, Morimoto Waikiki Restaurant, Pahala Plantation House (coffee farm), and more!

This festival is a dream come true, combining my love of photography, music, nature, and interdisciplinary discovery together.  I can't wait to share more, once it begins in August!  Check out our website for more info - www.himusicfestival.com.

Here's a shout out to our talented musicians/artists yet to be mentioned above - Daniel Lelchuk (cellist), Kwan Yi (pianist), Mikayla Sager (our young artist in residence), and Rusty's Hawaiian 100% Ka'u Coffee!
