The performance hosted by Lahainaluna Hawaiiana Club & Boarders’ Chorus features an estimated 100 student dancers, singers and musicians. It starts about 6 p.m. and is expected to last about an hour and half. Parking is also free.
The evening’s entertainment is preceded by a Paina Supper. Tickets to the meal are $17 per person. For more information call 662-4000.
These photos, shot at a recent rehearsal, show some of the participating student dancers working to perfect their performance under the watchful eyes of volunteer kumu and choreographer Pomaika’i Krueger, assisted by Ilima Greig (daughter of club founder Jimmie Greig) and retired teacher and long-time club advisor Lori Gomez-Karinen.
Gomez-Karinen urged friends of the school, residents and visitors to save the date and make plans to drive up the hill. She suggests an early arrival, (even if not coming for dinner). Also planned for the weekend are four Luna classes hosting reunions on campus with hundreds of alumni expected to attend.
The annual David Malo Day event has been a West Maui tradition since 1970. It honors Hawaiian scholar, historian and author David Malo, who was a graduate school’s first class and played an important role in the history of Hawaii.
Lahainaluna High School, founded by American Missionaries in 1831, is the oldest high school west of the Mississippi. It is the only public school in the islands with a boarding program where students from other parts of the state come to live and study in Lahaina.Follow @mauiwatch
