Chippewa Valley Ukulele Orchstra
Posted: December 6, 2016
The Ukulele Orchestra of Eau Claire is a new way to engage students in learning ukulele and having fun making music with others. Each session features lesson time for both beginning and more advanced students, as well as time for the ensemble to play together. The repertoire is specifically designed to have parts for a variety of skill levels so that everyone can participate.
Regular attendance is encouraged, but not required. Students may start any time, attend when they are able, and join in our performances.
