Calling all ukulele players young and old to Strathmore’s free outdoor summer concert series: UkeFest 2011!

On Wednesday, August 24th beginning at 7 p.m., join hundreds on the lawn at Strathmore to pluck, pick and strum their way to a Guinness World Record for Largest Ukulele Ensemble. The current record for Largest Ukulele Ensemble was set on June 20, 2009 at the London Uke Festival where 851 uke players performed in unison.

“We’re hoping to have at least 852 Ukulele players because that’s what we need in order to break the Guinness Book of World Records. They don’t have to be experienced players, they just have to be players,” said Strathmore’s Shelley Brown.

Ukuleles will be available to purchase on site beginning at $30 from House of Musical Traditions. A notary will be in attendance to verify the final count.
