Thursday, December 8 – fundraiser at The Counter and performance at Kahala Mall!

If shopping and dining out are music to your ears, you can experience both in four-part harmony today, Thursday, December 8, when Na Leo Lani performs at Kahala Mall!

Join us at Kahala Mall center court at 6 pm for our performance, then head over to The Counter afterwards for burgers & delicious sweet potato fries!

Na Leo Lani’s fundraiser at The Counter is happening all day on December 8, so you can also eat lunch there, order by phone, or put in an in-person take out order. (Online orders are not valid for the fundraiser.)

Simply mention Na Leo Lani to your server or when you place your order, and The Counter will donate 20% of the proceeds of your bill to the chorus.

Thank you for your support!

Birthdays take the cake

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.

Our November birthday girl, Rosie!

This month’s birthday celebration coincided with National Cake Day,” which we marked with cake hats and more.

Talking Turkey

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.

(Photos courtesy of Chris W. & Suzanne N. — thank you!)

We really put our necks out for our physical warm-ups!
No one in this group is afraid to look like a turkey.

In the spirit!

Guests and members (some dressed up in honor of “National Fast Food Day”)

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 34 Headliners 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.
