At our last rehearsal of every month, we always celebrate chorus members’ birthdays with a birthday sash, a special “get to know you” question posed by our Birthday Captain, Wally, and a rousing round of Happy Birthday to You in our best barbershop style.
At our Wednesday rehearsal before the Thanksgiving holiday, we took time to express our gratitude for the gift of song . . . and have a little turkey-themed fun while we were at it. See below for photos of Na Leo Lani members strutting our stuff for turkey-style warm-ups and putting the “dressing” in dressing up for Thanksgiving.

Our rehearsal last night was graced by the presence of five ! guests, including two visiting Sweet Adelines from Australia — Marg Cox and Justine Cox, both of Southern Cross Region 34Headliners Chorus in New South Wales. We had a grand time and lots of laughs, including some crazy costumes in honor of Fast Food Day (who knew?!) and an audition by quartet Loco Moco.

Also returning were old hands, SWUFTH participants, and repeat visitors Yoko, Lissi, Allison, and Pamela. Thank you for joining us, ladies! Can’t wait to see you next week.
Na Leo Lani proudly celebrates our Director, Christine Wee, for her selection for a 2022 Sweet Adelines International Small and Midsize Chorus Director Scholarship. The award helped underwrite her participation this past July in the International Education Symposium in San Antonio, Texas.
