This will be the festival’s 36th anniversary, which over the years has earned the reputation of being the finest educational music festival in the Pacific Islands.

The Pacific Basin Music Festival is an international event, bringing together the most talented junior high, high school, community, and college level bands and choirs from countries of the Pacific Basin and beyond. Festival activities include adjudicated and outdoor group performances, a full ensemble workshop, a luau, a dinner dance, and a visit to the USS Arizona Memorial. One adjudicated ensemble will also be selected to work with the festival’s composer-in-residence to develop a commissioned work that will be premiered at Hawaii Theatre.
