On behalf of Hawaii Invitational , our staff and adjudicators, we would like to personally invite you to join us at the 2015 Hawaii Invitational International Music Festival and Hele Hui Championship.


Experience of a Lifetime

A great time awaits you. From a fun, educational music experience to interesting and historical sightseeing to exciting Hawaiian entertainment and dining, the festival is poised to deliver a memorable experience to each and every participant, family member or friend. The highlight of your week is sure to be the exciting “Salute to Youth” Parade on Wednesday along Kalakaua Avenue. In addition to your performances, we have some special events planned to insure you a week of fun on the beautiful island of Oahu and world famous Waikiki Beach.

We know that there is a plethora of travel companies offering band and choir trips to Oahu and that choosing one specific company can be a daunting experience. But, thanks to groups like yours, the Hawaii Invitational has become one of the most popular adjudicated music festivals available to youth and high school concert bands, jazz bands, orchestras, choirs and auxiliary units. With over 40 year’s experience, our professional staff will customize a tour package designed specifically for your group.

Our Promise to You

Hawaii Invitational constantly strives to anticipate your needs and we sincerely hope we will exceed your expectations. As your hosts for this festival, we hope that you will accept our invitation to join us in Hawaii in 2015.

To our past participants, a sincere thank you for your continued support of the Hawaii Invitational and Salute to Youth Parade. To those joining us for the first time, a warm “Aloha” and we look forward to providing your group with an enjoyable and rewarding festival experience.
Jay Johnson & Carla Crittenden (President, Festival Director)
