Sept 13 Oral History Event

Learn about the Queen

Learn about Queen Lili’uokalani

I am proud to announce the launch of the “Oral History & Sing-Along Series” starting September 13 at the Bailey House Museum in Wailuku. The first program will feature Queen Lili’uokalani in honor of her September 2nd birthday. Participants will learn about the last monarch of Hawaii, sing some of her songs, and learn the stories behind those songs. All ‘ukulele and guitar players are invited to bring their instruments.

Future programs will feature Prince Kuhio on March 26, 2015, and King Kamehameha the Great on June 11, 2015. These two programs fall on Hawaii state holidays so that participants can learn the significance behind these past leaders of Hawaii on their actual birthdays when we honor them.
