VIRTUAL Ukulele Sing & Strum Along! 

We are testing out the virtual application of our ukulele meet up! It might work, but it might not be perfect-- worst case scenario, come and say hello to a uke-lovin' group via Zoom. 

Register to receive the zoom meeting link. 

Limited to 10 users. 

We'll sing and strum along to music with chords and lyrics displayed on the movie screen in the theater. Feel free to bring any sheet or self-written music to share with the group. While beginners are welcome, this class is intended for uke players with a basic understanding of chords and strumming. It's a fun opportunity to meet new ukulele friends, practice the art of strumming and singing songs, and celebrate music at the library!

Participants must bring their own ukulele.
