Amy Yamasaki, director of choral ensembles at UH Hilo, invited Bremer to guest conduct the Spring 2002 concert during her leave of absence. Yamasaki directs the UH Hilo choral program and teaches voice and general music classes. She also performs as a soloist around the island, and with Bremer, is active in the American Choral Directors' Association.
