Hawaii International Music Festival is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, celebrating music and Hawaii by bringing internationally acclaimed musicians to the communities of Hawaii through innovative, interdisciplinary concerts and educational outreach opportunities.  Through these unique activities, HIMF builds artistic and educational partnerships to help strengthen the classical music landscape throughout Hawaii.

Founded in 2016 by Eric Silberger, internationally acclaimed virtuoso violinist, Amy Shoremount-Obra, Metropolitan Opera soprano, and Carlin Ma, Artistic Program Director and Festival Photographer, HIMF re-imagines the normal classical music concert into a community-driven, holistic arts experience.  Joined by Taylor Yasui in 2017, they spear-headed concert and outreach projects, partnering with local organizations including Rusty's Hawaiian, Hawaii Public Radio, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, and more.
