Tuesday Tune: Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra

February 2, 2016
WIUO 2016 USA Tour Party

Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra brings their unique style of fun and gorgeous tunes to McGlohon Theater on March 13.

Happy Ground Hog Day, y’all! Punxsutawney Phil says spring is coming early this year … sure sounds like it in this Tuesday Tune!

Hailing from New Zealand, land of the Hobbit movies, comes Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra with their mix of charming Kiwi humor, disarmingly small instruments and sublime musicality. One of the world’s finest ukulele acts, they return to Charlotte’s McGlohon Theater at Spirit Square on Sunday, March 13, at 7:30 p.m. They bring instant joy with their heavenly harmonies and outrageous costumes. Expect covers of tunes from musical acts as varied as Justin Timberlake, Dolly Parton, Elvis, The Beatles, Cyndi Lauper, Prince and more.

Here they are singing the Randy Newman hit: “Short People.”

 

 The band’s number one rule is: “If you know the words, sing along. If you don’t know the words, sing along!” Don’t miss this fun-fest for all ages. For tickets, go to BlumenthalArts.org or call 704-372-1000.
