Happy New Year to you all! We were lucky enough to attend your 2004 concert when we visited Hawaii for the holidays. It made our vacation so special. The Honolulu performance was one of the best we've heard over the course of years. Not having to fight snow and freezing rain to drive there made it even better! Hopefully, we'll make it for next year's concert. Thanks for the interesting article.

Agreed! We have a top rate symphony, musicianship-wise. Too bad the "organization" is ... well, disorganized. The musicians deserve better!! Kudos to them for sticking it out during hard times and continuing to make beautiful music.
