What began 30 years ago as “a bit of fun” has since kept this “plucky” orchestra entertaining audiences worldwide. Enjoying outsized success playing pint-sized instruments, the “Ukes” cross genres and upend expectations with toe-tapping charm. You’ll want to be in the audience when they come marching in, sporting their deadpan British humor and spot-on musical interpretations of film scores and avant pop classics from Ennio Morricone to Nirvana.
