CANCELED: Performance for Young People: Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain
March 20, 2020 | 10:00 am
Due to the closure of the UGA Performing Arts Center through March 29 and the cancellation of the band’s tour, this performance has been canceled and will not be rescheduled. Ticketholders should check their email or contact the box office for more information.
Playing popular hits and classical favorites, the Ukes honor the spirit of the songs we love while adding textures and sounds that can only be created with four simple strings. The eight virtuosos—playing ukuleles of various sizes and registers and singing along to the great delight of all (usually!)—have toured the globe since 1985 with a trunk full of tunes, a uniquely British sense of humor, and a toe-tapping performance that no one can ever resist. Don’t even try!
Teachers: view the study guide for this performance online here.

Groups only. For information and reservations, please call the Box Office beginning July 22 at (706) 542-4400.
