The Sounds of Aloha had a grand time cheering for one of our sister choruses, Honolulu Blend Show Chorus, and its newest quartet, Bella Makana, at their April 8, 2017, Friends and Family Night. The event gave the groups a chance to practice their compeition performance packages before an enthusiastic live audience as they prepared to travel to Phoenix for the Spring Regional Convention and Competition of Region 21 Golden West of Sweet Adelines International, April 20-23. SOA and two of its quartets, 19th Avenue and Funny Bones, were grateful for all the support and aloha we received from Honolulu Blend and our other sister chorus, Na Leo Lani, as we prepared to compete in our own Mainland competition this past October, and we were only too glad to return the favor! It's always fun for us, too, to sing for such a fired-up audience, and we were proud to debut two terrific new songs for them, as well as three new members: Iska Rabeendran, Ronald Nakagawa, and Philip Stigsson!
We know both Honolulu Blend and Bella Makana will do a fabulous job representing Hawaii in the larger barbershop world. Go get 'em, ladies!
