12th Annual UkeFest

Sat–Wed, Aug 15-19, 2020
It’s not too early to plan a strummer of a summer learning (or perfecting) your ukulele skills! Celebrating a decade dedicated to this small but mighty music maker, UkeFest Artistic Directors Cathy Fink and Marcy Marxer return along with Bryan Tolentino and more extraordinary instructors for five days of skill-based instruction. For those looking for more intensive skill development, Strathmore’s UkeFest is the only program of its kind that offers an advanced track.
