The Buskirk-Chumley Theater is proud to present the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain. Formed as “a bit of fun” in 1985, the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain has “grown into a much-loved institution,” according to The Observer. The current ensemble of ukulele virtuosos has been playing together for over 20 years and given thousands of sold-out concerts around the world, including shows at Sydney Opera House, The Royal Albert Hall, and New York’s Carnegie Hall.
