    Default My High school Ukulele orchestra

    Hi, My names Steven Marr. im from Timaru in New Zealand and recently entered a south island ukulele orchestra competition, we won the whole thing. it was brilliant at it was heaps of fun. we decided to start a ukulele orchestra after we saw the Wellington international ukulele orchestra last year. so anyway we all attend high school in timaru and we had to play an iconic new zealand song. we choose Apple Pie Bed by Lawrence Arabia. Heres the video. Feed Back would be great.

    Congratulation on your victory! You guys sounded great. I think it is wonderful that you have so many ukulele orchestras organized. I would love to be in one, but haven't found enough players to join me. I am jealous, but very happy that New Zealand has such a great ukulele community. Must be a great place to live.

    P.S. I like you're outfits. Nice attention to detail.

    cheers, its building into a very big thing here. do you remember in primary school when you would be forced to play the recorder? well in new zealand they have replaced that with playing the ukulele just recently so clearly its still growing.
