    Default Playing for a talent show

    Well, another dream come true. Looks like I am playing Ukulele in a regional church talent show in a week! I was able to get in with my Ukulele!

    I am so excited! Will update as I go along in the week before the talent show.

    Ill also try to have a friend record me playing in the talent show for you guys.

    Currently, I am trying to figure out which Ukulele to bring. I am most comfortable with my Concert, maybe I will bring that one.

    Yes, definitely bring your concert ukulele, Jared. Participating in the talent show could feel a bit strange or distracting to you. Having your concert uke with you that day will be like having a comfortable “friend” along for the ride. Best of luck, and have fun!

    Best wishes. If you're interested in doing more things like this, check out World Music Day on June 21. Many cities have several places that will host performances by local musicians. I participated last year, my church was one of the host venues. We're a downtown church with amazing acoustics and host a lot of different music events throughout the year. In the early/mid 60's Duke Ellington conducted a performance of his sacred choral music!

    that's interesting. I didn't know there was a day like that. Isn't there also a play music on your porch day?

    Should be a great experience, Jared! Have fun with it! Have you decided what songs(s) you're going to do?

    Well, because it's a church talent show, I'm doing a church song. The song I am doing is titled, "Master the Tempest is Raging."

    I'm trying to figure out what I should say at the talent show before I start playing the ukulele.

    I've got five days to figure that out and to practice.

    Jared that is very cool. Best of luck.

    Introduce yourself and the song. And maybe, why you chose it, if it has a significance to you.

    Enjoy the experience. And have fun.
