Quote Unquote: Hawai‘i Youth Symphony music director John Devlin

After a competitive nationwide search last year, New York native John Devlin, 33, was selected as the Hawai‘i Youth Symphony’s music director from a pool of more than 80 candidates. He replaces beloved maestro Henry Miyamura, who retired after 33 years. Devlin, who served as music director of two youth orchestras in Virginia and the cover conductor of the acclaimed National Symphony Orchestra, hopes to expand music programs in underserved communities and inspire the next generation of musicians and leaders.
