And remember, "What we do has no value!"
For those who have read this far, a poem by John Gillespie Magee, Jr...
Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings; Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds, — and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of — wheeled and soared and swung High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there,
I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air... .
Up, up the long, delirious burning blue
I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace Where never lark, or ever eagle flew —
And, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod
The high un-trespassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.
One of our 2022 Annual Ukulele Jeopardy Prizes is a harmonica class. Another is a new harmonica.
This one-hour class has been extended to anyone and everyone interested in learning the instrument. Read about the class here. Refresh the page for more information closer to the date.
Start time is 15:00 EST (3:00 PM EST)
Please register in Zoom in advance to get the Zoom link.
To enter this free class in Zoom, you also need to register into your Zoom account BEFORE you can activate the link. This is called AUTHENTICATION. Please check that you can get in, beforehand, to avoid disappointment.
Visit the main web page for our Zoom information for the first meeting of 2023.
Every session is recorded from 3:00 pm and live streamed for review and sharing. Only session participants and subscribers to the YouTube Channel will get URL of the livestream recordings because we UNLIST the video as soon as the session is over.
- video recording transcribers (indexers) - so we can find the song or performer afterwards
- screen sharer / scrollers - so we can be handsfree and play
- promoters - help spread the word so people know about it
It's like a meeting without the meeting!
Bring your uke and sing us a song -- or just sit in and enjoy.
Song theme of the night is BOWL -- interpret as you will!
The meeting will NOT be recorded. This is for our enjoyment in real time.
6:45 - doors open, mics and cameras on for chat and cocktails
7:00 - songs start
8:00ish: awkward log-off
ZOOM registration: you MUST be registered with Zoom to gain access. The Zoom registration link shows up on this page once you've RSVP'd YES for this event.
A FEW SIMPLE RULES for PERFORMER SIGN-UP --
Deadline for sign-up is Wednesday at midnight, Danno time.
Since the program is only one hour, it turns out that TEN is about the right number of performers to schedule.
To help keep the list open to anyone who would like to play, the simple rule is: if you performed last week, you go to the end of the list for this week. (The corollary is: is you did NOT perform last week, you go to the top of the list this week.)
In real-life terms, that means if you performed last week, and if we have 10 new performers this week, you won't make the list.
Please always volunteer, whenever you're in the mood, and I'll do my best to post the list by Thursday, so everyone can plan accordingly.
Hope to see you there!
Ukulele Fusion and Northshore Ukulele Players are presenting a concert on March 25, 2023 in Danvers. We'll have instrumental pieces by Fusion and vocals by Northshore. The concert includes additional solos, duets, and trios. The Fusion music has from 3 -5 parts and always includes easy chords for newbies and beginners. Still lots of time to join in and learn the music and parts. Great fun and lots of talent. There is always lots of help learning the parts.
