Hawaii Youth Symphony Concert
Hawaii Youth Symphony News Release
The public is invited to a free evening of music featuring the talents of cellist Daniel Scoggins and violinist Jordan Watt in a concert on Molokai presented by Hawaii Youth Symphony and its Pacific Music Institute (PMI). Through Hawaii Youth Symphony’s partnership with the National Orchestral Institute and Festival, both Scoggins and Watt have travelled to Hawaii as Teaching Fellows for this year’s PMI, an annual summer music camp connecting students with acclaimed soloists, players from major symphony orchestras, and educators from leading music institutions.
Free one-hour public concert on Thursday, July 21 at Saint Damien Catholic Church starts at 6 p.m.
A recent graduate of Manhattan School of Music and Oberlin Conservatory with a degree in Cello Performance, Daniel Scoggins is Teaching Artist at Bronx Arts Ensemble. Jordan Watt is finishing his bachelors at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music as a recipient of the Cincinnatus Presidential Scholarship, and will attend the Juilliard School for his masters next year.
In addition to the public performance to be held at the Saint Damien Catholic Church, the Fellows will conduct a teaching session exclusively for the students of the Molokai Instrumental Music Education Program (MIME), founded by Bob Underwood, earlier in the afternoon.
