REEL ASIAN UKE JAM

SPECIAL EVENT | SAT NOV 10, 8:00 PM – 9:30 PM
THE MONARCH FESTIVAL HUB (12 CLINTON ST)
Admission: $10 SUGGESTION DONATION OR PAY WHAT YOU CAN

Following the Canadian premiere of Jake Shimabukuro: Life on Four Strings, join torontoUKES & Corktown Ukulele Jam for a special edition of their “uke jams” – a live teach-in on the basics of ukulele technique and follows in the tradition of the Corktown Uke Jam event held every Wednesday at the Dominion on Queen. After watching the film, you’ll want to pick up and play and there’s no better way to learn from Toronto’s diverse and welcoming ukulele community.

Proceeds from this event will go towards supporting the artistic development of 16-year-old Riverdale Collegiate student and ukulele protégé Adrianne Chan, by raising funds to commission a profesional-quality artist-grade instrument for presentation to her in April 2013. Chan personifies everything that Shimabukuro is about: musicality, hard work, dedication, perseverance, tenacity, thought, community, flair and panache. Her accomplishments so far have been directly influenced by how he represents these qualities
