The Symphony of the Hawaiian Birds is made possible in part by the estate of Alex and Frances Jenkins Pickens, with additional support from Brian Bagnall.




Background Information

The Hawaiian Islands were once inhabited by over a hundred endemic birds. Today, few residents of the Hawaiian Islands have even seen a native forest bird. Hawai‘i’s native birds continue to face a number of threats through diseases, loss of habitat, and competition with non-native species. Because our surviving endemic forest bird species represent a considerable value to both the integrity of Hawai‘i’s natural ecosystems as well as cultural and intrinsic value, it is important to educate people on how to protect them.


Six new compositions and videos/animations about Hawaiian birds created by local composers and artists.

Ticket Prices:

Adults: $15
