Join us for Uketoberfest!, a one-day ukulele event on Saturday, October 4 featuring all things ukulele for all skill levels! Whether you are an absolute beginner, an advanced player, an intermediate player or a pro, participants of Uketoberfest! will have the opportunity to meet others of like-mind and develop or enhance their skills on this fun, guitar-like instrument.
Guest artists and master class instructors include: The Ukulele Kings: Ben Hassenger, Pat Mallory, Steve Szilagyi , Gerald Ross, Danielle Ate the Sandwich, and Chester Winowiecki.
The event will kick off in the morning with an enjoyable, open group strum and will lead into a day of elective masterclass sessions specific to the uke player on chord structure, strumming techniques, songwriting, adding bass instrumentation to your own ukulele group, and building your own ukulele. The day will conclude with a late afternoon close-up concert featuring performances by the guest artists. An optional post event gathering will offer an open mic setting for participants looking for further fellowship and the opportunity to perform. This is a wonderful event to meet people and learn a new instrument or enhance your playing ability in the beautiful fall setting of Interlochen Center for the Arts. A limited number of ukes will be available for those who do not own their own. Please indicate your need to borrow a ukulele as a part of the registration process.
