Upcoming Ukulele Events
TransLink Skytrain Evergreen Extension Opening Celebration
Friday, December 2
1. Free Ukulele Tutorials (10:30am to 7:00pm)
If you’d like to volunteer, please email to sign up. We’ll be teaching basic chords and carols. A couple of hours of your time would make a big difference.
2. Ukulele Christmas Performances (2:30pm–3:00pm; 5:30pm–5:50pm)
We will give two ukulele performances. If you’d like to volunteer, please email to sign up.
We are holding free ukulele lessons all day and playing two ukulele performances tomorrow at the Coquitlam Central Station in celebration of the opening of the Skytrain Evergreen Extension. Here’s Translink’s media release and a list of the family fun activities from food to music at the new stations. Santa may be making an appearance tomorrow.
Find us at the Coquitlam Central Station. Come and cheer us on, or better yet, join us at the booth and/or on stage! Bring your uke, music stand, Santa’s hat and good cheers!
