The Kamehameha Alumi Glee Club honored the legacy of Princess Bernice Pauahi Bishop with a performance at the Royal Hawaiian Center. Helumoa, the site where RHC stands today has been fully renovated and features the Royal Grove, a lush coconut grove with lovely rock and water features as its centerpiece. It's a truly lovely place to pay tribute to Pauahi and the Club did so with traditional founders day numbers He Inoa no Pauahi and Pauahi o ka Lani and other Kamehameha standards.

As the USS Hawaii made it's way into Pearl Harbor the stands filled with loved ones of those serving aboard and dignitaries from the military, state and city. A fly over of F-15 jets opened the ceremony and after hula performances by Halau Hula ʻOlana, the Kamehameha Alumni Glee Club performed songs fitting the occasion. Hole Waimea, Pupu o Ewa/Kanaʻiaupuni and Kamehameha March were just a few of the selections.
