Spotlight on Women Composers


We continue to hear the music of women composers this year as one of the focuses of our choir. Last week we heard the music of Queen Lili'uokalani at high mass, and this week will will enjoy the work of local composer, Leohone Magno. Born in 1950 and raised in Canada, Leohone Magno holds a Master of Arts degree in Anglican Church Music from Norwich University and a Fellowship degree in Organ Performance from Trinity College of Music, London, England.  
After touring North America for seven years as an organ recitalist, Magno retired to Honolulu in 1989 and has held several church music positions in our local Episcopal churches, the most recent being Organist and Choirmaster of St. Peter's Episcopal Church (2001-2015). While working with the Hawaiian Choir at St. Andrew's Cathedral (1991), Magno composed the musical setting for E Nā Ali'i (text written by Father Malcolm Nāea Chun of St. Andrew's Cathedral) in 1998. As choral conductor for the Prince Kūhiō Hawaiian Civic Club Chorale, she composed the second part of E Nā Ali'i, a polyphonic variation of the first version, in 2000. E Nā Ali'i is one of many Hawaiian choral compositions by Magno. She is also a talented artist (oil on canvas) who began a Hawaiian cultural series in 1999.

This coming Sunday she has been invited to come and conduct our choir in the singing of her anthem.
