Between rehearsals, masterclasses, and concerts, FIR students experienced the culture, history, and natural beauty of Hawai'i. A hike up Diamond Head (pictured) gave them a bird's-eye view of the island. Plenty of time was spent relaxing on the beach and enjoying local cuisine. Students spent one morning visiting Pearl Harbor, experiencing first-hand the site of such an important part of American history.

Stay tuned for where Fulton In Residence
will travel next!
