Looking forward to 2011. . .

Aloha mai kākou,

2010 has been a banner year for us and we would like to thank all of our supporters who have made our success this year possible.  There are always new and exciting opportunities coming up and moving into 2011 we are looking to add 10 new members to fill out our vocal ensemble enabling us to grow the Alumni Glee Club repertoire with more great Kamehameha music. We are currently looking to add a combo (bass, ʻukulele, guitar) to our performances and are seeking new members from the class of 1970 to 2005 who are familiar with Kamehameha music.

If you or someone you know enjoys reliving the days of song contest and the "senior sweep" or you were lucky enough as a freshman to beat everyone else come back (or have them come back) to the music that is Kamehameha and carry on a proud tradition honoring our Pauahi and and the legacy left through the Schools' music.

We have regularly scheduled rehearsal on Tuesday evenings at 7pm starting up again November 30, 2010 at the Bishop Memorial Chapel.

Please contact our Club secretary, Kuni Agard for more information on auditioning.

A hui hou,

Aaron Mahi, Director
Kamehameha Alumni Glee Club

Green Initiatives Make Hawaiʻi a Perfect Host

Enterprise Honolulu hosted the World Congress on Zero Emissions conference at the Hawaiʻi Convention Center and featured the Kamehameha Alumni Glee Club to close the event.  How fitting that a week of activities aimed at preserving our natural resources and creating a better environment wrapped up with some very creatively tied in choral music by the Glee Club.  A special Mahalo to our gracious hosts Pono Shim and Mark McGuffie of Enterprise Honolulu.
