      EVENT DETAILS
      Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain

      Location: Bing Concert Hall

      Playing instruments “bought with loose change,” the UOoGB proudly asserts that all music, whether by Tchaikovsky or Otis Redding, is ripe for reinterpretation—as long as it is played on the ukulele. Charming audiences from London’s Royal Albert Hall to Carnegie Hall, the Orchestra is funny, virtuosic, and infectiously high-spirited, employing a battery of “ukes,” the world’s only “bonsai guitar,” a bit of whistling, and a menagerie of voices. In The New York Times’ words: “For sheer fun and outright daffiness tied to first-rate musicality and comic timing, few concerts this year matched this ensemble’s [Carnegie Hall] performance.”

      Patrons are invited to bring a ukulele for a jam session during the performance—or purchase one on-site (limited quantity available).
