The Rose Ensemble

The Rose Ensemble, featuring The Podium's very own Kim Sueoka, is celebrating the release of their new album NĀ Mele Hawai'i: A Rediscovery of Hawaiian Vocal Music on Friday September 21st at the University of Minnesota - Duluth's Weber Music Hall, and Sunday, September 23rd at The Fitzgerald Theater.

The program, Hawai'i Revealed: Music from the Soul of the Hawaiian Saga, is a "journey through Hawai'i's musical heritage – steeped in tradition, transformed by worldwide influences and reborn through the struggle to carry the past into the present—an artistic legacy that looks and sounds nothing like a stereotype."

This unique combination of storytelling, song, and hula (sans grass skirts) is sure to impress.
