LIHUE — Did you know that the Kilauea Performing Arts have their Shrek musical production coming up March 12?

Keiki from the program at the Kilauea Elementary School, performing preview numbers from the production, were just part of the fundraising event benefiting the Kapaa Middle School Choir and Ukulele Band, Saturday at the Keiki Aloha Fest held at the Kauai Veterans Center with an offering of lunch wagons, crafters, and a live painting class.

A steady crowd of people flowed through the gates that opened to performances to keiki groups such as the Na Hoku O Kaumuali‘i, the Chiefess Kamakahelei ‘Ukulele ensemble, the Koloa Elementary School choir, and ‘ukulele band, the Chiefess Kamakahelei Middle School Choir, the Wilcox Elementary Creative Arts, Kapaa Elementary School Kid Fit, Joyful Noise taiko ensemble, Ka Waikahe Lani Malie hula, and of course, the hosting Kapaa Middle School Choir and Ukulele Band who will be traveling to the Heritage Music Festival in California in March. The offering was further enhanced with appearances of Showtime Characters and the KUGA group.

Mary Lardizabal, director of the Kapaa Middle School choir, said the effort would not have happened without the efforts of the group’s board which is led by president Andrea Kaneakua, vice presidents Henry Panui and Jimmy Galiza, secretary Kaleo Keli‘ipuleole, treasurer Terri Russell, Tim Geis, and the Kauai Veterans Center.
