The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain to Perform at McCullough Theatre, 11/21-22
Renowned for its "perfectly polished professionalism, threaded through with dry wit and wry humor" (The Independent), The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain is a group of all-singing, all-strumming musicians.
Formed in 1985, the current eight-strong ensemble has been playing together for over 20 years, and has become something of a national institution, giving thousands of sold-out performances across the world.
In concert, The Ukulele Orchestra offers a funny, virtuosic, twanging, awesome, foot-stomping evening. Jumping from Tchaikovsky to Nirvana via Otis Redding and Spaghetti Western soundtracks, the Orchestra takes the audience on an eclectic musical adventure.
