The Central Program Council proudly presents the Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra on February 16 at 7:30pm in Cox Auditorium!
The Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra, hailing from New Zealand, are skilled performers who live to entertain, making sure audiences forget their troubles and sing their hearts out. Their signature sound features high-octane ukulele solos, heavenly multi-part vocal harmonies and an impressive range of ukuleles. Flamboyant outfits, delightful theatrical effects and convivial crowd participation complete the night.
The band’s repertoire is a superbly eclectic curation of songs appropriated from many genres alongside tunes from the South Pacific, all packaged into a spectacular, unmissable funfest. Expect to hear fantastic “ukulelefied” versions of rock and pop classics by the likes of Justin Timberlake, Dolly Parton, Cyndi Lauper, Blondie, Salt n Pepa and much, much more.
The band’s number one rule is: “If you know the words, sing along. If you don’t know the words, sing along!”
