Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain at Wortham Theater Center
Sunday, March 17, 2019 | 5:30 pm$45
Whether they’re channeling the Wild West with the theme to The Good, The Bad and The Ugly or rocking out with the Stones’ Satisfaction, the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain boldly goes where no player of the diminutive Hawaiian instrument has gone before.
For more than 30 years, they’ve been bringing their lighthearted love of the instrument to stages around the world, making fans of David Bowie, Brian Eno, and Monty Python’s Michael Palin.
Playing a range of ukuleles (small and large, and in high and low registers), the world’s only “bonsai guitar,” and singing along, the ensemble covers everyone from Beethoven and Tchaikovsky to Talking Heads and Queen.
