In celebration of World Ukulele Day, the Western Illinois Museum and Ukulele Macomb are pleased to hold the annual Community Sing-a-long on Tuesday, January 31 from 7:00 to 8:30 pm. The event will be held at the Western Illinois Museum, located one block south of Macomb’s Courthouse Square. The event is free and open to the public.
Ukulele Macomb has celebrated World Ukulele Day with a community sing-a-long for the last five years. This family friendly event will include an hour of playing well-known songs. Those who enjoy singing and listening, but do not play an instrument are welcome and encouraged to attend, and song sheets will be available. Much like the early settlers in the region who entertained themselves by singing, this event brings families and friends together for an enjoyable evening.
Since 2009, Ukulele Macomb has been teaching all ages to play the ukulele with workshops and two weekly jam sessions. They provide entertainment to the community performing for events, organizations and area assisted living centers. Their enthusiasm for the ukulele has encouraged people of all ages to learn to play music and enjoy singing together.
The Western Illinois Museum is located at 201 South Lafayette Street in Macomb. For more information, contact the museum at 309.837.2750 or email@example.com.
