IHM students outside of the Hawai‘i Convention Center Ballroom after winning the 2016 Compilation Album of the Year Award!

On Saturday, May 28, 2016, the Institute of Hawaiian Music was honored with the 2016 “Compilation Album of the Year” at the 39th Annual Nā Hōkū Hanohano Awards. A contingent of IHM students accompanied Dr. Keola Donaghy to the awards, held at the Hawai‘i Convention Center in Honolulu.

Because of time constraints (we were given only 30 seconds to express our gratitude to everyone who has supported the program and participated in the recording, we had to offer abbreviated thanks. Below is the text that we prepared to express our gratitude to everyone:
