Contribute Time, Talents and Expertise By Volunteering!

Over the many years that the Kamuela Philharmonic has been in existence, we have been blessed with many generous donations from audience members, venues, and local businesses. Like all nonprofits, we depend in large part on the generosity of those who give, and we are forever grateful for all of the support we have received through the years. No matter how much you end up giving, know that we could not do it without you.

Every donation helps our organization in our mission to provide high-quality orchestral music to Big Island audiences by allowing us to continue to pay our musicians for their time and skill, and well as to expand upon our educational initiatives, including the annual Madeline Schatz-Harris Concerto Competition.

For the 2016/2017, in conjunction with the launch of our Season Ticket program, we have developed a tiered series of rewards for donors who give up to certain levels. These rewards are meant to honor and show appreciation to everyone who gives to the Kamuela Philharmonic. Additionally, as a 501(c)3 nonprofit, any donations may be tax-deductible.
​Finally, a donation of $500 dollars will get you two season tickets with priority seating, a “Mahalo” in the season program, an invitation to all three pre-concert “Meet The Conductor” receptions, and a collection of three CDs, featuring the Kamuela Philharmonic Orchestra in performance from our 2015/2016 season, including Maestro Brian Dollinger's very first concert with the Kamuela Philharmonic. These CDs are not for sale and will only be given out as gifts to donors.
$60 dollars is the cost of one season ticket and can be purchased here. A season ticket will gain you admittance to all three of our concerts at a reduced price, for audience members who want to be sure not to miss a single concert! Season Ticket sales will end on October 30th at 4 PM.

​Note: If you already have a ticket to our show at the Kahilu Theatre in March but are still interested in the KPO Season Ticket or any of the donation levels listed below, please contact Executive Director Michael Chu at
A donation of $120 or more will get you a season ticket with reserved seating. No matter when you arrive at any of our concerts, your seat will be among the best in the house, reserved, with your name on it (this includes one of the 'salmon' colored seats at the Kahilu). Additionally, you will also receive a special mention in the “Mahalos” of our season program.
A donation of $250 dollars or more will get you two season tickets with reserved seating, a special mention in the “Mahalos” section of our season program, and an invitation to one pre-concert reception with Maestro Brian Dollinger and other members of the Kamuela Philharmonic ohana. Each reception will be held at 3:15 PM, forty-five minutes before each concert, and will feature pupus and a complimentary beverage.
