Ukulele … Summertime … Colorado

It all seems to go together and here’s what you need to know about our annual Ukulele Summer Institute. Just go to the Jolly Roger Ukulele website and read the first page. Then grab your ukulele and meet us on Monday nights at 7 pm Denver time from anywhere on Earth with a decent wi-fi connection. We will be in-person, online, and rawking the basement with you.

And This Winter
Prepare Yourself for Summer

Our writers are already hard at work creating hope, optimism, sunshine and (hopefully) some laughter for you to play. Plan on joining us this fall after a delightful summer of increasing your skills.

Our Traveling Ensemble

FleasLogo

The FLEAS! It should come as no surprise we have a small group of maniacs in our orchestra who actually practice, play a more advanced repertoire, and are generally gah-gah for ukulele. If you have an event where some of the best ukulele performers in Denver might make for a fun time, the Fleas are your team. Drop us a line as early as possible and we’ll start a conversation with you about event details. More info is HERE.


Orchestra Mission

Rocky Mountain Ukulele Orchestra is a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to arranging a diverse rehearsed music 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 community involvement to promote music education for everyone.

Thanks To

The Rocky Mountain Ukulele Orchestra thanks Jim Olson (the dude with the vision to give this a try way back in 2011 when ukulele wasn’t hip), Kelly Graham, Susan Martin, Nathalie Renfroe, Tim Hoffman, John Jungerberg and the rest of the staff with the City of Lakewood’s Heritage, Culture and the Arts division from the old days and the new. They’ve helped us with a place to call home, creating a wonderful environment for teaching and learning music. As we’ve grown, we’ve enjoyed and appreciated the staffs at Washington Heights, Lakewood Cultural Center, Clements Community Center, Historic Grant Avenue, and Green Mountain United Methodist church. A lot of people have tolerated us over the years … thank you!
