HKGNA Fellowship program facilitates the development of young performing artists and gives them the opportunity and challenge to assist economically disadvantaged youth with music development and mentorship. Working with community organizations or directly with youth, Fellows participate in youth outreach activities specific to the needs of young kids who have a genuine passion for music and in turn develop leadership and mentoring skills. These’ activities have included hands on engagement and interaction with underprivileged youth in teaching instrumental lessons, performing together on stage, and leading or participating in music educational development programs. As the central focus of HKGNA’s mission is to promote artistic excellence and community service, HKGNA pays the highest regard for each fellow’s individual contributions and talents. Fellows are included as featured performers in recitals and chamber concerts, and provided other performance opportunities for advancing the mission HKGNA.
