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!
