Aloha Festivals Floral Parade: Hawaiian Music Award

     During the late 1980s, the Friends of the Royal Hawaiian Band established a special music award for competing high school bands that performed Hawaiian march music in the annual Aloha Festivals Floral Parade on ʻOahu.  The purpose of the award was to help encourage bands to perform a variety of traditional Hawaiian music during the parade while at the same time, exposing their students to Hawaiian band music repertoire.  The earlier awards, which were titled "Na Mele Paikau O Hawaiʻi," followed by "The Kapena Berger Marching Band Award," were deactivated toward the end of the 20th-century and during the first part of the new Millennium, but were reactivated in 2008.

Hawaiian Band Music Available for Download

     The Friends of the Royal Hawaiian Band, in conjunction with the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa Band and local music arrangers, are establishing an online music library that will allow bands participating in Hawaiʻi parades access to Hawaiian marching band music that may be downloaded, then printed.  This project will be ongoing and will continually increase in size.  We encourage bands participating in parades throughout the State of Hawaiʻi to perform Hawaiian music.  These downloads are available as a service to the community.  For more information and available music, click here.
