About



The Long Beach Ukulele
Orchestra was founded by Benoir and Jeff Alan in the Fall of 2013 to provide a
platform for education and performance.



 



Mission



We educate and
facilitate a fun and relaxing atmosphere for anyone interested in playing
Ukulele. We intend on performing many concerts and releasing recordings in the
near future.



 



Description



Our group has been evolving from a handful of
players to a small ensemble of about 10 to 15 regulars. We rehearse Tuesday evenings at Studio Noir in the West End of
Long Beach under the direction of Benoir and Jeff Alan. The 1 hour classes
focus on basic Uke techniques and advanced playing skills like soloing and
flamenco styles. Our repertoire is a mix of cover songs and a few originals
that were well received at our first recital in December 2013. We intend on
performing at Arts in the Plaza and other events around Long Island. We welcome
new members of all levels and age. There is a $20 fee to attend our class/rehearsals
and we've expanded into two classes. We also incorporate other acoustic
instruments such as violin, viola, flute, percussion and upright bass. Acoustic
guitars will also be brought into the mix as Benoir has been heading in a Rhys
Chatham inspired direction with large ensemble compositions in the future. FIOS
"Push Pause" produced a feature on our ensemble that aired in
February and can be found at http://youtu.be/u-fZoSFAMDQ
