ExpiredUkulele Ensemble – EXPIRED

Daytime Uke Ensemble. Instrumental exploration.

Come and play your part in this Ukulele Ensemble! This is a casual daytime musical experience intended for retirees or flexible hour workers. In this group, we are building a repertoire of instrumental music arranged in two to four parts. The repertoire ranges from classical to traditional to contemporary music. Though not for the absolute beginner, practically all skill levels can participate. Whether you’ve ‘just started recently’ or you’ve been ‘playing for years’, there is a part for you in this ensemble.

Though principally intended for participant’s enjoyment, you will also develop these skills: standard notation and/or tablature notation reading; listening skills; timing; and dynamics and melodic playing up & down the fingerboard.

Examples of repertoire we’ll tackle this winter include:
  • Jesu, Joy Of Man’s Desiring (J.S. Bach)
  • The Third Man Theme (Anton Karas)

New Members Welcome!
