Ebb & Flow Arts, Inc. (E&FA) is a 501 (c) (3) non profit presenter of modern music and multi media events. It is the only such presenter in Hawai’i, and was founded in 1999, by composer/pianist Robert Pollock. It aims to build bridges between the arts.

Mission Statement

The work of composers and artists is central for an enlightened culture. Ebb & Flow Arts enriches the soul of the community by educating the children and by presenting contemporary music, art and multi media on Maui, in Hawai’i, and around the world. Functioning in an international network, E&FA helps to provide a stage from which to inspire our culture to find new horizons.

To date, E&FA has presented one hundred thirty-two (132) concert/multi-media events in Maui, Oahu, Kauai, the Big Island, Sacramento, Berkeley and Oakland, California, Tokyo, Japan, Seoul, South Korea, and Jalapa, Mexico. These events included performances of  four hundred sixty-eight (468) works by one hundred fifty-nine (159) composers, eighty-eight (88) world premieres,  one hundred fifty-seven (157) Hawai’i premieres,  eight (8) biennial presentations by the Maui Arts & Cultural Center, twelve (12) international festivals, twenty (20) KHPR radio broadcasts, eight (8), four hour Manao radio broadcasts, fifty-nine (59) informances and one thousand two hundred sixty-seven (1,267) school music lessons. Audiences continue to grow. Often E&FA events fill their venues to capacity or SRO. Estimated total attendance: 30,000, not counting radio audiences – a total estimated 110,000 listeners. E&FA with its international profile and history of achievements, provides concert, education, and recording experiences that rival any on the mainland. Our substantial core audience of repeat attendees for modern music continues to grow.  Like few places on the planet, these magical islands of Hawai’i, inspire singular creations and performances that enrich the community. We attribute E&FA’s two decades of activity to our consistent quality and our laser-like focus on mission.
