Cotuit Center for the Arts will hold its Ninth Annual Ukulele Celebration on Sunday, December 5, at 6:00 PM. The holiday-themed event features some of the Cape’s best ukulele players and the traditional “Uke-A-Long,” which closes the show and gives everyone with a ukulele an opportunity to play and sing onstage together in a rousing celebration of the ukulele.
Steve Gregory, who teaches beginning and intermediate ukulele at CCtfA and is the owner of Score Music in Sandwich, has organized the ukulele celebration since its inception. He is a big fan of the ukulele. “It’s a nice, friendly, affordable folk instrument that is easy and comfortable to play,” he said. “It appeals to anyone who wants to play music for enjoyment and to all ages. I’ve had students as young as 4 years old and into their 80s.”
“Admission to the Ukulele Celebration is free if you bring a ukulele and join in the play-along at the end of the show,” he said. “It’s a blast to be up there on stage with 45 or 50 people all singing and playing. There’s nothing like it. It’s a really intense, profound experience.”
