Collins Center for the Arts,
University of Maine, Orono, ME 04469 United States

The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain is a group of all-singing, all-strumming ukulele players using instruments bought with loose change. The concert is a funny, virtuosic, twanging, awesome, foot-stomping rock ’n’ roll obituary and melodious light entertainment. It features only the bonsai guitar and a menagerie of voices in a collision of post-punk performance and toe-tapping oldies. Going from Tchaikovsky to Nirvana via Otis Redding and Spaghetti Western soundtracks, the orchestra takes audiences on “a world tour with only hand…
