Hula songs to celebrate the 55th Annual Merrie Monarch Festival from April 1 -7 at Hilo, Hawaii is the theme for this month’s Sing-Along with Mele Fong series on Thursday, April 5 from 10 a.m. – noon at Kaunoa Senior Center for adults 55 and better on Maui. Learn more about the Merrie Monarch Festival by clicking here.
My sing-along program is one of a monthly series that evokes the feeling of sing-along with Mitch Miller programs as the lyrics and ‘ukulele chords are projected on the large screen in the front of room for everyone to follow. ‘Ukulele players are invited to bring instruments to play along as I lead everyone by singing and playing my ‘ukulele while my husband accompanies us on ‘ukulele-bass. Don’t worry if you don’t know the ‘ukulele chords or the unique strumming pattern for the songs. The focus is on singing the songs, finding out the stories behind them, and enjoying the group experience.
Why are people returning? “It’s fun!” is what I’ve heard.
Lunch is optional and recommended as a good time to meet people who enjoy learning the Ukulele Mele Way. Kaunoa Senior Center is located in Spreckelsville, Maui.

Aloha, Mele Fong, aka Ukulele Mele
