I’m doing my part to help Strathmore break the record tonight.
Strathmore is concluding its summer concert series with UkeFest 2011 and they are putting out an open call to DC musicians to help them break the Guinness World Record for Largest Ukulele Ensemble. To reach their goal, they need more than 851 ukulele players to perform one song in unison on Wednesday, August 24, 2011 at 7 p.m. The current title is held by uke players at the London Uke Festival. Washington, DC will steal this most auspicious title at promptly 7:30 p.m.; uke players must register to participate by 7 p.m. Ukuleles will be available for purchase on site beginning at $30 from House of Musical Traditions.
