|Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain, Morrow, GA, 04/15/2018|
Knowing that dialysis would probably wear me out, we broke up the trip into a two day outing. We drove to Atlanta on the fourteenth, stayed overnight and then took our time finding the campus and Spivey Hall early this afternoon. The concert was on the campus of Clayton State University in Morrow, GA. It's a pretty campus and the hall is a nice venue.
Now all that I had seen of the UOoGB was on YouTube until today. I found out today that none of the videos do this little ensemble justice. The videos that I previously thought humorous and delightful, in person are mesmerizing and beautiful. UOoGB do not spoof songs, but give wonderful well thought out renditions of loved music with mere ukuleles. Listening to their take on these old hits are like hearing them again for the first time.
Also. Not only can they play, they all sing. Man can they sing. The harmonies were tight and spectacular. They are the Blue Angels of the ukulele. Again. The YouTube videos don't do them justice. If you ever get a chance to hear them live, GO!
