Cotuit Center for the Arts will hold its Eighth Annual Ukulele Celebration on Sunday, December 1, at 7 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.
Performers include Steve Gregory’s Uke-topian Ukulele, Judy Jollett’s Uke-Clectics, the Unlikely Strummers, the Ukuladies, Susan Anarino’s Dolphin Ukulele Ensemble, and the CCftA All-Stars.
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.
Sheet music and instruction videos are available at the CCftA website (artsonthecape.org) for those playing in the Uke-A-Long. There will be a short rehearsal at 6:30 PM, 30 minutes before the show begins.
Tickets are $20, and admission is free for those bringing their ukuleles and joining in the Uke-A-Long. Cotuit Center for the Arts is at 4404 Route 28 in Cotuit. For more information, and ukulele song charts, visit artsonthecape.org, or call 508-428-0669.
