Hi all,
I have just got this request from an organiser of the Chilean support group.

Dear Charlie, and Canberra Ukulele

“Let’s to Help Other Association” and the Chilean community from Canberra with the support of the Chilean Embassy are organizing a special concert with the purpose of fundraising for the people that are suffering in Chile from the earthquake.

We are inviting an exacting group of artists from Canberra to help us to present this concert. We would love if you could participate is this fundraising event with one performance of 12 to 15 minutes (3 or 4 songs). We expect your participation to be free of charge. All the money collected in this function will be deposited in the bank account that the Chilean Embassy has opened in Canberra.

At this stage the concert could be carried out 19 or 20 March; 7pm – 10pm, the possible venue could be The School of Music Hall. These details would be confirmed 9 or 10 March. The allocated time of the performance will be determined in due course.

The preferable repertoire could be Latin music. You could tell us a list of possible songs that you could play to allow us to choose the songs that we could prefer

Let me know your intention, we will be grateful if you are able to participate in this special event. At the same time if you are not we will be understand the difficulty to participate in an event with short notice.

If you accept it will be sent to you an official invitation, with the list of song selected and all other information.

A prompt reply by Monday 9 March would be appreciated.

As per “Let’s to Help Other Association” instructions.

With may best wishes,

Luis Bonilla

A prompt reply by Monday 9 March

I have gone through our list of songs and came up with a set the might qualify as 'Latin' with a bit of imagination.

Blame it on the Bossa Nova
Under the boardwalk
Island in the Sun
Jamaica Farewell
Rum and coca cola

There are 8 songs here and we need only to do 4.

If it's ok will you folks, I'll submit this list and see what their choices are.

Please indicate if you could participate, I'll post more details as soon as I get them.
