The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain travels to Chico This Thursday!

Taking the uke where it has never gone before, Chico Performances presents The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain this April 11th  in Laxson Auditorium !

OK, traditional Hawaiian ukulele it’s not, but “wow!” what players.  England’s Ukulele Orchestra is a funny, virtuosic, foot-stomping ode to rock-n-roll, featuring eight ukulele players, a bit of guitar, soaring vocals, and a whole lot of humor.  Uke oldies segue into “Psycho Killer” by David Byrne, Stevie Wonder’s “For Once In My Life,” and “Pinball Wizard” by the Who, for an evening of post-punk performance, all hilariously played with a stiff upper lip.

This performance will take place in this Thursday Laxson Auditorium at 7:30 p.m. on April 11th.

Tickets are $32 premium, $27 adult, $25 senior, $18 student/child. You may purchase your tickets online here or in person at the current box office location on the corner of 3rd and Chestnut streets.
