Chione will share the musical story of Pāka’a Lanakila, a little boy living in Hawaii, composed by Hawaiian native Jon Magnussen. The ensemble will engage children by intertwining musical learning, storytelling and American Sign Language.

This 45-minute storytime program can be enjoyed by all ages, from babies to children at heart.
