NO STRINGS ATTACHED FOR UKE FUN
CALLING all ukulele players or aspiring strummers.
In collaboration with Umbrella Studio’s Pop- Up Arts festival PUNQ, the Pop- Up Ukestra is presenting at Townsville Bulletin Square in the CBD.
Music teacher Anu Grace said the event demonstrated the importance of a vibrant and active community, not just for dedicated artists or trained musicians.
“The Pop- Up Ukestra is not just a whole bunch of ukuleles bashing away, rather a conducted community music experience resulting in an impressive and entertaining group performance,” Ms Grace said.
“The secret is the choice and arrangement of the music into skill differentiated parts and having a bossy conductor who leaves no doubt when you should be playing.
Rehearsal sessions are from 12.25pm on July 28, August 1 and 4, with a final performance at the Cotters Market on August 6 at 11am.
