Ebb & Flow Arts is the only arts presenter in Hawai'i, to receive an award in 2009, from National Endowment for the Arts in the Challenge America category

From July 25 - August 1, 2009, Ebb & Flow Arts will present Summer Music Hawai'i - a series of five events comprising modern and classical chamber music plus multi media events. One event will occur in Honolulu.

"Ebb & Flow Arts is the only arts presenter in Hawai'i, to receive an award in 2009, from National Endowment for the Arts in the Challenge America category," says E&FA founder and director, Robert Pollock. "This grant enables us to bring leading performers from San Francisco Symphony Orchestra, the Tilden Trio, to Hawai'i," he adds. On July 25, Tilden Trio will premiere Sarn Oliver's new trio at Doris Duke Theater, Honolulu.
