Students from six high schools on Oahu committed to rehearsals on Sunday mornings with Director David Hirano. Mr. Hirano also taught numerous masterclasses covering reeds, embouchure, tongue position, air support, posture, and instrument carriage. They performed two pieces at the UH Saxophone Choir Concert on March 18, 2018 and performed the last piece together with the college and community members.
This newly created High School Saxophone Ensemble was developed and sponsored by the Hawai'i Saxophone Foundation. We are very grateful for the large participation and for a very successful ensemble. We hope to continue this program in the years to come! Congratulations to all these talented young saxophonists!

The Hawaii Saxophone Foundation is a non-profit organization created to raise the level of awareness and education of the saxophone in Hawaii. Plans to achieve this will be by commissioning new compositions, hosting clinicians for workshops and concerts, providing college scholarships and eventually providing instruments to schools in need.
