Uke In The Afternoon, #115

Robbins Library

[ By popular demand, we will be using two songbooks for this Meetup: The regular UitA songbook (links below) and the Holiday songbook used for the Waltham Philharmonic Orchestra reception, at either https://www.dropbox.com/s/rckhel9dcq2gpkp/wpo_2019.pdf?dl=0 or https://www.dropbox.com/s/rckhel9dcq2gpkp/wpo_2019.pdf?dl=1 ] ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Uke In The Afternoon: An afternoon ukulele Meetup! * We meet from 1:00 to 3:00 pm on the 1-st, 3-rd and 5-th Wednesdays of the month. Doors open at 12:45 so that we can start playing at 1 p.m. During the school year, it is essential that the room be vacated by 3, so we end at 2:45. * All skill levels welcome. Most participants arrive with at least a few months experience, but we have had total beginners join in (who soon find they have been playing for at least a few months!). We also have some participants who have played for years. * In order to maintain a balanced sound, the jam is for 4 string acoustic, wood ukuleles only. All sizes of ukuleles (soprano, concert, tenor, baritone) are welcome. * We play from a set book that can be found at https://www.dropbox.com/s/5x6isqxnezup32l/uita%203rd%20edition%20%28dated%29.pdf?dl=0 and https://www.dropbox.com/s/5x6isqxnezup32l/uita%203rd%20edition%20%28dated%29.pdf?dl=1 (Please check the comments for the date of the latest version. Let me know if neither link works for you.) In addition, anyone is welcome to bring 12-16 copies of a song for the group to play together. * We usually meet in the Community Room in the basement of the Robbins Library in Arlington, just off the intersection of Route 60 and Mass Ave. However, during the month of September, we will meet in the fourth floor Conference Room. * Parking (Yes, they ticket!): -- There is metered parking at the library and on Mass Ave. The rate is $1/hour for up to 4 hours. -- The town's metered lots (across Mass Ave from the Library and another behind Wood & Strings, roughly kitty corner from the Library) charge $0.50/hour with no time limit. * The format : -- play as a group for 50 minutes or so -- 10-15 minute break -- announcements -- open mic: for anyone who wishes to perform a song for the group -- play as a group until closing "Play as a group": We go around the circle, each person in turn choosing a song from the book. The person who chooses a song gets to lead it, with an option of asking someone else to lead, in which case the chooser still gets to pick the tempo. * Please bring a music stand.

Blue Moon Strumday: Traditional Christmas Carols at Strummerville Ukulele Club!

Hey Strummervillians! Please bear with us while we work out some scheduling issues. Between now and the end of 2019 dates will be a bit erratic, but there's no need for despair. Come January dates will be concrete for us at our Café at the Somerville Armory home. YAY! That said... Bring your uke and your Christmas spirit and join us at the Café at Somerville Armory. We are hosting a special Christmas themed Meetup, only happens once in a "Blue Moon." This time we'll be strumming and singing traditional carols to celebrate Christmas. We're not going all the way back to Gregorian chant, more like "The First Noel," "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing" and "Silent Night." The songs we grew up singing in church. It doesn't matter if you can sing or not because Christmas carols are for everybody. Download or print the songbook here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/1s7tagsxnzeizmj/Blue%20Moon%20Traditional%20Christmas%20Carols%202019%20Final.pdf?dl=0 What to expect at our meetups: The first 45 minutes we play and sing songs from this digital songbook, we then take a 15 min break. Then back to it! ALL LEVELS WELCOME! Café at the Somerville Armory offers their facilities and hospitality to us at no cost so PLEASE support them by planning to purchase a beverage and/or food at every jam you attend. Looking forward to seeing everyone! Meetup: http://www.meetup.com/BostonUke/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/The-Strummerville-Ukulele-Club-102715341125916/
