Acclaimed ukulele ensemble in Surrey, then Hawaii

SURREY — World-renowned Langley Ukulele Ensemble recently returned from a four-day tour of the Okanagan. 

The local ensemble was invited to Kelowna recently to perform a series of concerts at elementary schools in the region and lead a few workshops aimed at raising awareness and interest for a uke program that emulates what’s been offered in Langley for more than 30 years. 

The Senior A and B ensembles made the trip, lead by musical director Paul Luongo. 

Now, the kids are rehearsing for a concert much closer to home. The ensemble will be performing “Music through the Nations” on Saturday, April 19 at Chandos Pattison Auditorium, 10238 168th St. in Surrey, starting at 7 p.m. 

Tickets are $20 for adults/seniors, $15/students (with three-for-two pricing starting April 12) available through langleyukes.com, or by emailing tickets@langleyukes.com. 

Following this concert, the team will begin rehearsing a new routine they will perform in Hawaii this July.
