About Us ex

We believe in magic. Whether it happens under the breeze of trade-winds or in an intimate gathering with just a few close friends, we’ve seen the power that chamber music can have on people. There’s something inherently beautiful about watching string music connect with an audience. In an instant, as the instruments begin to align and the melody takes shape, you can literally feel the audience’s collective mood change. It’s tangible. It’s real. It’s magical.

At Chamber Music Hawai‘i, we celebrate the dynamic nature of our art form and seek to blend our genre into the modern world, all the while striving to educate and enrich our community at every turn. Because at our core, we’re not just a nonprofit composed of local musicians, we’re professional artists who understand the power of collaboration and the ability of music to magically transform communities.

Our commitment to our craft never waivers and our sense of pitch never fades. With generations of musicians to stand upon, we’re taking chamber music into the 21st century and beyond, starry eyed and ready to embrace all the magical musical moments that the future has in store.

Tresemble

Chamber Music Hawaii coined this new word to describe its combined ensemble of mixed instrumentation drawing from all three of the resident ensembles. Tresemble concerts can program many great pieces of chamber music that do not fit into one of the typical categories. We even bring in guest musicians, such as pianists, harpists or vocalists to perform this often neglected repertoire. Sometimes a Tresemble concert uses a larger group of musicians to perform works such as Mozart’s Grand Partita for winds, Dvorak’s Serenade, or Stravinsky’s L’Histoire du Soldat.

Board of Directors

Chamber Music Hawaii Board members represent the community and serve without compensation for Board service. Each ensemble is represented by one seat on the Board. Directors are responsible for carrying out the mission of the organization.
