The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain

7:30 pm Tuesday, October 13, 2015

Sixteen million minutes. One billion seconds. Thirty years. As of June 2015, The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain had clocked sixteen million minutes of ukulele action. By September 2016, the orchestra will have been active for one billion seconds. The irresistible entertainment juggernaut is developing even further with new tours, new audio, and new video releases. Celebrate the anniversaries as “the Ukes” continue touring to great acclaim from sold-out houses and happy, stomping, laughing audiences. They play ukuleles, they sing, they say funny things, and they whistle. But the musicians bring a lot more to the table. “Pure entertainment,” “magisterial,” “The best musical entertainment in the country,” and “a much-loved national institution” are some of the things audience members and reviewers have said in attempting to encapsulate the indefinable magic and atmosphere of all-around good humor, light-heartedness, well-being, and joy that permeate the orchestra’s live concerts.
