The Hawaiian Serenaders – Richard Tom and Mele Fong – present a Father’s Day Concert on Sunday, June 16 at 10 a.m. at Kula Hospital in upcountry Maui. The husband-wife duo play ‘ukulele and u-bass and sing a variety of Hawaiian, hapa haole, pop and jazz songs that are familiar to older adults. This is the second year that the Serenaders are returning to entertain hospital patients and their families with a free Father’s Day concert.
The Serenaders are artists with the University of Hawai’i at Manoa’s Statewide Cultural Extension Program, and have represented the state of Hawai’i in concert at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. Rich and Mele are both Hawai’i born and raised and have played music professionally together since they married in 1994.
