About Ohana Arts
Ohana Arts, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, was founded in January 2010 by Jennifer Taira, sought after composer, pianist, and clarinetist, Carolyn Taira, director of the Hongwanji Mission School Performing Theater, and Laurie Rubin, opera singer and recitalist who concertizes internationally. Having received degrees in their respective fields on the mainland, Jennifer, Carolyn, and Laurie realized the need for more exposure to the arts in Hawaii which would help foster and nurture the local talent, while building upon Hawaii's already rich culture. Their summer program was launched in 2010 with a musical theater workshop, culminating in a fully staged musical production comprised of 23 students islandwide, ages 8-18. Ohana Arts has expanded to offer three additional programs, including morning acting, dance, and voice intensives, a composer-performer workshop for advanced middle and high school musicians, and for the first time this summer, Ohana Arts Keiki, a program for outgoing 1st and 2nd graders to receive a comprehensive introduction to musical theater techniques. 80 students from over 30 schools around the island are participating in Ohana Arts programs this summer. Jennifer, Carolyn, and Laurie are joined by choreographer Liz Piccoli, who has danced with the Metropolitan Opera and Chicago Lyric Opera, acting teacher Jill Bolstridge who has directed over 50 youth theater productions in New York and beyond, composition teacher Gordon Beeferman whose works have been performed by New York City Opera and Eighth Blackbird and songwriting teacher Scarlet Keys who is a staff songwriter for Warner Chappell/The New Company Nashville. Ohana Arts aims to inspire and engage people through high caliber educational and professional arts programs, and to cultivate an international family (Ohana) in the Pacific by promoting world friendship and peace through the universal language of the arts.
