Event description

Description

Grab a uke and join The Pop-up Ukestra in your lunch hour and we'll bring the city streets alive with the sound of ukes! The Pop-up Ukestra is a conducted community music experience, teaching parts of varying skill levels resulting in an entertaining performance and a sense of learning and accomplishment.

As part of the (PUNQ) Arts Festival, Anu Grace is running a series of 3 lunchtime Ukestra's where we will work on 2- 3 popular songs to perform at the Sunday market. The First Ukestra starts Friday July 28th, then Tuesday August 1st & Friday 4th Aug from 12.30-1.30 pm with a Performance at the Cotter's Market at 11.30 am on Sunday 6th August. Please meet at 12.25pm in the Bulletin Square, Flinders St for each Ukestra rehearsal ( come earlier if you need help with strings or tuning.) Beginners welcome!

The Pop-up Ukestra works as there is a part you can play even as a beginner because the music has been arranged to suit different levels of skill for basic players thru to the Aces. Having a dynamic director leaves no doubt when and what to play and ensures that everyone will be able to join in and be a star when the moment comes. Beginners may learn a simple 2 string pluck or a one chord thumb strum while those with more experience, learn the riff and strum pattern. You choose a part within your comfort zone and we work collectively to sing the chorus's and produce fun, tuneful music. Each song has a lead singer, an instrumentalist (if we have one ) and a Uke-bass player.

Please try and commit to all 3 sessions AND the Finale performance of The Pop-up Ukestra. Contact the organiser if you would like to borrow a ukulele as numbers are limited. Townsville City Council is proud to support The Pop-up Ukestra under their Community Grants Program.
