Guest Night fun in the spirit of Oktoberfest

At our September 29 rehearsal, Na Leo Lani was joined by three wonderful guests and celebrated autumn with an antic Oktoberfest-themed Guest Night — complete with team interpretations of Beer Barrel Polka, Hawai’i-style takes on Bavarian costume, and natürlich! a rousing Chicken Dance to top off the evening.

Happy Birthday to our three September birthday gals!

A joyful return with Friends and Family

On September 18, Na Leo Lani joyfully presented its first Friends and Family concert in nearly three years. We had a wonderful turnout of enthusiastic supporters, including former NLL director Lars Isaacson and many singers from Sounds of Aloha and Honolulu Blend Show Chorus, as well as many warm and encouraging partners, spouses, parents, and extended ‘ohana.

Thank you to all who attended and joined in the fun! And thank you for your generous financial support of Na Leo Lani through your donations to our calabash bowl!
