Strum With Us
Playing the ukulele is one of the fastest growing crazes not only in The Villages but in the country. Over 100 ukulele players have been meeting regularly at Lake Miona on Thursday afternoons for 90 minutes of singing and strumming for 7 years. On January 30, 2020, we moved to our new location: Everglades Rec Center. Singers come to the mikes to sing but everyone plays as music is shown on the screen for all to see. No need to worry about hitting a wrong note: with so many ukuleles no one will know. Besides, how many balls did Tiger hit before he won a tournament? Come wearing a frown and leave wearing a smile.
See you Thursday at Everglades Rec Center: 1:45PM for classes, 2:30PM for play. Doors open at 1:30PM.
