Everything from classic songs to current hits were performed or accompanied by dance, voice or instrument at Waimea Elementary School’s third annual talent show at Kahilu Theatre last Thursday.

More than 100 students from kindergarten through fifth grade performed solo, in duets or groups for a total of 25 entries. A three-minute video of children practicing for the show kicked off the free event. The auditorium was filled with students, parents and the public that morning, who cheered on each participant with the help of several show hosts.
