Learn to play the ukelele

The Pacifica Ukes ukulele association is now accepting new registrations into the Junior Strings Program

The Pacifica Ukes ukulele association is now accepting new registrations into the Junior Strings Program for the 2015-2016 season.

The Pacifica Ukes is a youth-based performance group based in Campbell River.

This exciting group has earned a reputation both locally and abroad for the versatility and quality of its musical performances.

The Junior Strings Program is the entry group where the students are introduced to playing the ukulele and progress onwards into the older performing groups in the program.

Registrations are being accepted for students aged 9 to 11 (approximately Grades 4-6), with little or no experience in playing the ukulele.

The only requirement is a keen desire to learn to play the ukulele and to perform in an ensemble setting. Rehearsals begin Monday, Oct. 5, at Georgia Park school from 4 to 5 p.m.
