Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain
Starting: 08:00 PM
The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain believes that sometimes a foolish song can touch an audience more than high art. Its this conviction that guides the Ukulele Orchestra to bring us all-ukulele versions of everything from Tchaikovsky to Nirvana. A concert by the Orchestra is a funny, virtuosic, and melodious light entertainment featuring only the bonsai guitar and a menagerie of voices in a collision of post-punk performance and toe-tapping oldies. There are no drums, backing tracks, or electronic trickery, only an astonishing revelation of the rich palette of orchestration afforded by ukuleles and singing (and a bit of whistling).
