In conjunction with the University of Hawaii, Choirs of America is proud to present Nā Leo ‘O Hawai’i (aka, Aloha State Choral Festival + Tour). This truly special music festival is open to choirs from across the country (and throughout the world). Bring your choir to experience and celebrate the vibrant musical legacies and cultures of Hawai’i, Polynesia, and the greater Pacific Rim. With a dedicated emphasis on cultural exchange, choirs from around the world will enjoy adjudicated performances and clinics with our country’s finest clinicians. The day also features ‘Ohana Exchanges (during which different choirs perform for each other), imbedded and immersive cultural experiences unique to Hawai’i, and the premiere of E Himeni Kakou, a mass choir program for all participants in which singers come together to learn, sing, and perform new and traditional choral works that honor the cultures of Hawai’i, Polynesia, and the Pacific Rim!
