Bring your ukulele and
COME PLAY WITH US!
C'mon! Get out of your basement and give the kitty a break from listening to you play. There's a bunch of us who meet Sundays from 3 to 5 p.m. (except on holidays or in blizzards). First time participants, please come at 2 p.m. Regular members, please arrive 15 minutes early to set up. We want to be making music at the top of the hour so you need to be in your seat and ready. Plan to stay a few minutes afterward to clean up. We lock the back door when we begin rehearsal, so you'll have to climb the stairs and use the front door if you're late ... don't be late!
Best day to join our group?
Please come at 2 p.m. if you're new, so we can help you get oriented.

We write and arrange a diverse rehearsed ukulele repertoire for solo and ensemble performance in an educational atmosphere. We promote introductory and advanced music development using the ukulele as our principal instrument. We nurture beginning ukulele players as well as composers, advanced performers, and teachers, and we actively encourage participation by the public.
The Rocky Mountain Ukulele Orchestra thanks Jim Olson and the City of Lakewood for providing us with rehearsal space, endless amounts of love and support, and a place to call home at the Washington Heights Arts Center.
