Sunset Jazz marks 50th year for La Pietra

Nearly 400 people gathered Sunday night (Sept. 14) on the Great Lawn of La Pietra: Hawaii School for Girls to celebrate the school’s 50th anniversary.
It was a record turnout and a sell-out Sunset Jazz benefit concert, featuring Waikiki entertainment icons like Shari Lynn and Jimmy Borges. The PBS Big Band and the Piranha Brothers were among the other jazz acts. Two talented  La Pietra juniors, Jaresha Gladney and Amanda Apa, were surprise guest performers.

There was a Louis Armstrong table and an Ella Fitzgerald table for groups of eight. Others enjoyed gourmet picnic baskets designed by Eberhard “Chef Hardy” Kintscher.
La Pietra, the former Dillingham estate  on the slopes of Diamond Head, was designed  after an Italian villa. So guests got a little taste of Europe for the evening.
Lynn, who is the school’s music director,  created  the annual Sunset Jazz event  15 years ago.

New art studio blessed at The St. Andrew's Schools

What started out in 1954 as a  "dingy, dark"  shower room, according to alumnae, is now the first dedicated art studio that St. Andrew's Priory School for Girls has ever had.
A Hawaiian blessing  for the new studio by the school's Kumu Hula, Namahana Fuller, was held the morning of Sept. 13 on the grounds of Hawaii's oldest girls school, founded in 1867 by Queen Emma.The blessing was followed by an Art Fest featuring demos by guest artists.
Arts students  had to share space with other classes for years before the opening of the airy and bright new 800-square-foot studio.
"There didn't seem to be any good memories of the old shower house," said The St. Andrew's Schools head of school Sandra Theunick.
"But today we celebrate the art that will be created in our mind's eye and made with our hands in this beautiful new studio."
