Free concert for Maui community features Kamehameha Schools Children’s Chorus

April 8, 2024

In an evening celebrating the strength and resilience of the Maui community, the Kamehameha Schools Children’s Chorus will perform a free concert at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center (MACC) on Friday, April 12 at 7:30 p.m.

“He Leo Aloha No Maui,” meaning “voice of love for Maui,” is presented by Kamehameha Schools in partnership with the MACC. The event will include special guest performances by Nā Hoa, Kamaka Kukona and Hālau o Ka Hanu Lehua, and Nāpua Silva and Hālau Nā Lei Kaumaka o Uka.

The Kamehameha Schools Children’s Chorus is a Nā Hōkū Hanohano Award-winning group with five studio albums and two songs featured on the hit Disney animated film, “Lilo & Stitch.” The 100-member chorus of fourth, fifth and sixth graders from Kamehameha Schools Kapālama has been under the direction of chorus director Lynell Bright since 1989.

“Music has the power to lift the human spirit, and children’s voices have the power to touch your heart in a way nothing else can,” said Bright. “We want to help in the one way we know how, and that is with a free night of music shared with love.”

One Kapālama haumāna, Helen Juice Kamanu, knows it's more than just learning the mele but also being expressive in their storytelling. 

“This performance is special because it is a great way to lift our lāhui by our own special talent and passions,” Kamanu said. “I hope that our song is a gift of healing and joy.”

Pre-registration at is required to reserve your free tickets. Concert attendees are encouraged to bring donations to support the Maui Food Bank and those impacted by the wildfires.
