The Pop Up Ukestra was conceived as part of the first PUNQ festival in 2017 and has been touring Australia and New Zealand with this successful model of community music participation ever since. The Pop Up Ukestra is a community Ukulele Orchestra presenting an exciting musical learning curve with parts for every level of player and age group from 8 – 88. The idea is to bring the intensive rehearsals and performance of 3 – 4 popular songs, sung and played on Ukulele by heart, into public spaces to encourage participation, social interaction, fun and enjoyment. The Pop-Up Ukestra 2019 will have a different repertoire and costuming from our Motown theme of 2017. Through the interactive music scene, the Pop Up Ukestra creates a great complement against the vibrant & artistic city space and activation of community creativity.
