Established in 2013 as an independent pops organization, Hawaii Pops is a non-profit organization whose mission is to bring music and music education to residents and visitors of Hawaii.
Under the artistic direction of Conductor, Performer, and Host, Matt Catingub, Hawaii Pops launched its first season in September of 2013 with Jo Dee Messina and continued through June of 2014 at the Hawaii Convention Center, and featured the talents of artists such as Sheena Easton, Al Jarreau, and Keali`i Reichel.
"Maestro Matt Catingub, with the support and energy of Executive Director, Donna Bebber, are making the new Hawaii POPS Orchestra the prototype for POPS orchestras around the country. When Artists like JoDee Messina , Sheena Easton, and Amy Hanaiali`i perform, they’ll be looking out upon a full house of music-lovers who have just dined at their concert seats , with some of them having danced on a side-section to the music of the Hawaii POPS rhythm section."

Gifts of time and talent are important to Hawaii Pops. We have volunteer opportunities available at concerts and for special events. Contact us at 808-523-7677 if you are interested in learning about how you can get involved.
In order to keep our ticket prices affordable, we must count on sponsorships and donations. In the past, many nonprofit corporations have counted on one or two angel donors to provide donated funding for the organization. Of course, we welcome large gifts, but we feel that it is important to build a solid base of donors who will contribute on an annual basis. Every gift is important to helping us build this base.
If you would like to remember a friend or loved one, you can make a donation in that persons name. We will list all Memorial Gifts in the Concert Program. If you provide us with the family’s contact information, we will send a letter to the family acknowledging your gift (amount of the gift will not be included in the letter to the family).
What do you give the person who has everything? Make a gift in honor of that special person to recognize a birthday, anniversary, award or other significant life event. The recipient will be listed in the concert program and will receive a letter (without donation amount) acknowledging your gift.
Many companies will match the donations given by their employees to 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations. Check with your human resources department to see if your company participates. If they do, they will give you the necessary paperwork to send us with your donation. We will complete the forms and you will double your gift.
