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.

Tonight’s rehearsal was extra special thanks to the presence of visitors Sandy and Ruthanne from Heart of Michigan Chorus, SAI Region 2. They took time out of their vacation to join us for a full night of song — and they enriched our bari and tenor sections in the process!
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.
