He returns to Hodgson Hall Friday, April 1 at 7:30 p.m. with the Scottish Ensemble, a pioneering and virtuosic string orchestra from Glasgow. Their program features music by J.S. Bach, Holst, and Pulitzer Prize winner Caroline Shaw, as well as a new Meyer piece commissioned for this tour.

George Hinchcliffe’s Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain can and will play and sing just about anything, from “Life on Mars” to the “Theme from Shaft” to “Psycho Killer.” David Bowie called them “wonderfully clever” — and he was never more right! Join the band Sunday, April 3 at 3 p.m. for an afternoon of harmony and hilarity.
