Re-Launched in honor of the 10th Golden Gate International
Children’s and Youth Choral Festival
Nick Hartono was a beloved member of the Piedmont East Bay Children’s Choir from 1986 until his untimely passing in 1993 at the age of 13. He traveled with the Choir to England and Wales, and participated in the very first Golden Gate Festival in 1991. Nick, known for his enthusiasm, kindness, and passion for international culture and connection, was a vibrant, energetic young man who loved to sing.
On this 10th anniversary of the Festival, we wanted to honor Nick’s life, his spirit, and his dedication to breaking down cultural boundaries through song.
The Nick Hartono Memorial Fund, established and supported by Nick’s parents—Carmen and John Hartono—will provide financial support for the 10th Golden Gate International Children’s and Youth Choral Festival.
