Hawai‘i Youth Symphony Announces Promotions
The Hawai‘i Youth Symphony announces two promotions.
The symphony is proud to announce Randy Wong’s promotion from executive director to president of the nonprofit organization and Carol Tsang from Finance Manager to Director of Finance.
“An accomplished alumnus of Hawai‘i Youth Symphony, Randy Wong has demonstrated qualities such as strong leadership, passion for the arts and the courage to make music accessible for all young people in Hawai‘i and abroad,” said Board Chairman Richard Ing of Hawai‘i Youth Symphony. “I am confident in Randy’s abilities to lead HYS into its next chapter.”
Wong has served as Hawai‘i Youth Symphony’s executive director since 2012, during which the organization garnered Nā Hōkū Hanohano nominations, performed on NPR’s radio show “From the Top,” collaborated with the Hawai‘i Symphony Orchestra, and participated in a residency with the world-renowned violinist Midori. Committed to promoting the work of youth orchestras as essential musical, educational, and cultural assets, Wong is a board member of the League of American Orchestras’ Youth Orchestra Division and is an alumnus of the LAO Emerging Leaders Program. Prior to HYS, Wong directed professional development, grants and community partnerships for Music-in-Education National Consortium (MIENC) in Boston.
Tsang is a Certified Public Accountant in the State of Hawai‘i and was an external auditor with Deloitte and Touche prior to joining HYS.
