The Hawaiian Serenaders, Richard Tom and Mele Fong, will share information about the ‘ukulele, Hawaii’s official instrument. Learn the history, types, parts, and tuning the instrument, and how playing the ‘ukulele has evolved from rhythm accompaniment to a solo instrument. The husband and wife duo will also demonstrate how applying different rhythm patterns affect the feel of a song. Discover the stories behind the songs as you enjoy a musical mixed plate of Hawaiian, hapa haole, pop and jazz standards. This 45-minute program is suitable for all ages. Young children must be accompanied by a parent or adult caregiver.
