Hawaiian Style Christmas Concert December 19

Picnic For Poki

2018 Christmas Concert

Mele Fong and Richard Tom of the husband and wife duo The Hawaiian Serenaders are performing a Hawaiian Style Christmas Concert on Thursday, December 19 at 11 a.m. at the historic Ka’ahumanu Church grounds in Wailuku. The Serenaders sing and play ‘ukulele and u-bass to a variety of local and standard holiday favorites. Adult hula dancers from Na Hula Kupuna O Kaunoa will be dancing to six songs during the concert.

This is the second consecutive year The Hawaiian Serenaders have been asked to perform in December at the Picnic for Poki Hawaiian Music Series held on the third Thursday of the month. In 2018, the weather forecast was for rain and the concert was moved to inside Ka’ahumanu Church. The setting was magical as the rain gently fell as hula dancers from Na Hula Kupuna O Kaunoa danced to “Silent Night” and “O Holy Night” inside the church.

The free monthly performances are presented by Roselani Place and Ola Na Mele Productions. Attendees are invited to bring a lunch to enjoy outdoors and Roselani Place will provide fresh based cookies, coffee and water. Call 808-871-7720 for more information.
