Another practice site secured! Want to see what Ono Brewing Company venue will be like before the first official Society meeting next Sunday (Dec 8th)? Or at least get one more practice in with Moses Kamai tomorrow?
Remember to bring folding chair and music stand. We’ll be standing for the 45-50 min performance but no need during practice.
Can you read the lead sheet?
Can you strum along from the lead sheet?
Can you follow the leader?
Super! Then you can do this!!!!!
NVUS is looking for a bunch volunteers, the more the merrier — IDEALLY, … the whole Society would be uber-fantastic. But that will be wishful thinking in this area of busy lives.
But if you can make it…. This is one of 4 Society holiday performances — please support your ukulele club!
We are in the season of having a jolly Christmas, what a time to have some fun strumming holiday tunes. Every year, Reston Association and Fairfax County ask us to perform at Reston Town Center. Maybe it’s because we draw a crowd and get them toe tappin’ to our rendition of some holiday music, and that we play whole host of holiday genre.
So, Check out the calendar for the other holiday performances and RSVP (book)… then attend the November meetings and get some practice in. If you can’t make all, then there are links to the NVUS Practice Videos on our YouTube Channel (click here).
If you have any questions, leave Moses a message via our website OR email him using info@NoVA-Uke.org.
See you soon!!
