While the COVID-19 pandemic may have disrupted the way we teach music, we continue to adapt and persevere. It is with that spirit that the Pacific Music Institute announces its summer 2022 program–offering in-person classes that follow standard health and safety protocols. Available to local, mainland, and international students and faculty, in-person instruction will be held at the spacious Hawaii Convention Center.
Students ages 12-18 are required to be fully vaccinated. Boosters are recommended. Students ages 7-11 are strongly encouraged to be vaccinated. No masks are required for fully vaccinated and boosted employees or volunteers, or for students ages 12+. Instrument mask or instrument PPE are not required.
Before entering the Hawaii Convention Center, students may have to pass through a temperature screening location. From there, participants will be required to check-in upon arrival, answer a series of health questions, and then check out upon leaving the premises. Rehearsals remain closed to registered HYS students, employees, and volunteers.
Exact logistics of each program is subject to change due to the fluid and uncertain nature of the pandemic.
