We started our day with a wonderful workshop with the famous Roy Sakuma, who we met by chance at our hotel the day before. He mentioned us in his workshop to the crowd. Next, we got into our uniforms and got ready to perform at the great Waikoloa Ukulele Festival. They treated us to a free lunch of loaded sandwiches and drinks instead of a $100 honorarium. Much more valuable! We caught the tail end of Kris Fuchigami who was incredible! It was awesome to be able to perform on the same stage as ukulele legends! We broke the record for the smallest stage we have ever preformed on in the Queens Marketplace. It literally only fit four small chairs across the stage. After the concert we enjoyed an impromptu workshop with Kris out on the grass by the market. In our free time we went shopping in the Queens shops and listened to ukulele legends. After that we had the opportunity to listen to and learn from the "crazy ukulele girl" or "hot ukulele girl" to the boys. She was a fun, spunky, young, half-Samoan girl that played upbeat flamenco songs. We even learned a lesson in performing skills from her. At nighttime, the seniors enjoyed learning to squirt water across the hot tub from some local Hawaiian boys!
Aloha from the senior girls
