Fourteenth ANNUAL LOKOMAIKA'I 'AHA H¤MENI SONGFEST:
13 October, 2006, Friday 7:30 p.m. St. Jude Church, Makakilo
Free admission. Refreshments to follow, pot-luck style. Enjoy an evening of Hawaiian-style church music by several Oahu parish choirs.
This event encourages and promotes the use of Hawaiian music, language, and hula in our church celebrations.
These celebrations feature some newly-introduced compositions and arrangements of Hawaiian Sacred Music. Thanks very much to the 'Aha H´meni Committee and the St. Jude community, and all the participating choirs and their directors and composers for their generosity of time, talent, and treasure. All in all, this will be an incredible night to remember, where even the smallest of choirs receives the largest of accolades! Spread the word.....the 'Aha H´meni has to be one of the best highlights of Hawaiian Inculturation and choral musicianship!
