The Festival presented two major mass choir concerts open to the public: Saturday night at the BYU-Hawaii Cannon Center and Sunday night at the Blaisdell Concert Hall in Honolulu. In addition, two evening concerts held at the Turtle Bay Resort Ballroom provide participating choirs an opportunity to perform their own concert repertoire.
The Festival repertoire is selected to represent the choral traditions of those countries around the Pacific Rim and Polynesia.
An aloha sunset beach cookout dinner took place at the Turtle Bay Resort lagoon on the first night. All participants and companion tour associates gathered for welcoming ceremonies and hula greeting with our host choir, the Hawai'i Youth Opera Chorus. Throughout the nine days, many activities were designed to have students from different choirs interact with one another to learn and share music. A farewell aloha sunset event brought our Festival to a colorful close.
