University Musical Society (UMS) welcomes the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain for their UMS debut performance, Tuesday, November 12, 2013, 7:30pm in Ann Arbor's Michigan Theater. The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain has seen over 9,000 days of ukulele action. This group of all-singing, all-strumming ukulele players holds that all genres of music are available for reinterpretation, as long as they are played on the ukulele. With instruments small and large, in high and low registers, playing intricate melodies, simple tunes, and complex chords, the ensemble wields the limitations of the instrument with virtuosic expertise, revealing unsuspected musical insight. With cheerful nods to both the pompous and the trivial, the “Ukes’” performances are at once moving and amusing, hailing the popular and the highbrow.
