SURREY â€” 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 whatâ€™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 â€œMusic through the Nationsâ€ 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 email@example.com.
Following this concert, the team will begin rehearsing a new routine they will perform in Hawaii this July.
