The event will kick off in the morning with an enjoyable, open-group strum and will lead into a day of elective masterclass mini-sessions specific to the uke player. During lunch, which is included with your registration, an open-mic opportunity will be available for the enjoyment of participants and audience alike. The day will conclude with a late afternoon faculty concert and group strum. An optional post-event gathering off campus will provide participants an opportunity to apply new skills as a part of an open jam with others.
