The Morning Music Club of Honolulu was founded in 1905 by ten enthusiastic and musically talented women. Each member pledged to perform regularly and to promote musical interests in the community.
For 100 years, this club has enjoyed monthly classical programs highlighting performances by its own members and guest artists for the "non-performing membership" and their guests. It is one of the oldest continuously active music organizations in the United States.
In 1956, the Scholarship Competition began and has provided incentive for several now well knowned artists in the ensuing years. As many as twelve $1,000 awards have been given in a single year. It also awards Grants to classical music students to further their education. Scholarship funding is made possible through the generosity of members, guests, and friends interested in enhancing classical music in Hawai'i. If you would like to participate by giving a donation, please feel free to contact any of the members or Board members listed below:
