Attended the 92nd annual Kamehameha Schools Song Contest, “Ho‘ōla Lāhui, Ho‘oulu Pae ‘Āina — Vibrant People, Thriving Lands.” The event is held at the Blaisdell Arena, just across the street from my condo. Song Contest is one of our most beautiful and cherished traditions.
Before the show went live, Dr. Chun greeted the crowd and received a standing ovation. It was a very heartwarming moment. We had great seats in the loges. We sat directly behind the sophomores. Mahalo Kumu Joy for the ticket!
The highlight of the event is always the Hō‘ike. This year’s Hō‘ike was a tribute to Princess Pauahi. It was another “chicken skin” moment. I truly enjoyed being at tonight’s event. So proud of our students! Congratulations to all. Here are the results from tonight’s competition….
