About the Concert Series

The 80th Anniversary Pearl Harbor Commemoration Concert Series is a performance experience taking place on  December 4-8, 2021. This patriotic and musical spectacle commemorating the 80th Anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor will take place on Historic Ford Island, an active Military Base, at the Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum’s famous Hangar 79.

Hangar 79 is an awe-inspiring 80,000 square foot hangar featuring blue glass windows still riddled with bullet holes left by the December 7, 1941 attack. During World War II it was a maintenance and engine repair facility filled with fighters, bombers and patrol aircraft based in Pearl Harbor or en route to the front lines. Ensembles from across the United States are invited to perform in this once-in-a-lifetime experience at this historic event for an audience of military veterans, invited guests, and spectators in Hawaii for the 80th  anniversary.

Everyone should experience Hawai’i – and your band, orchestra, choir or dance troupe can, through the expertise of Music Celebrations International!
