The Long Beach Ukulele
Orchestra was founded by Benoir and Jeff Alan in the Fall of 2013 to provide a
platform for education and performance.
We educate and
facilitate a fun and relaxing atmosphere for anyone interested in playing
Ukulele. We intend on performing many concerts and releasing recordings in the
Our group has been evolving from a handful of
players to a small ensemble of about 10 to 15 regulars. We rehearse Tuesday evenings at Studio Noir in the West End of
Long Beach under the direction of Benoir and Jeff Alan. The 1 hour classes
focus on basic Uke techniques and advanced playing skills like soloing and flamenco
styles. Our repertoire is a mix of cover songs and a few originals that were
well received at our first recital in December 2013. We intend on performing at
Arts in the Plaza and other events around Long Island. We welcome new members
of all levels and age. There is a $20 fee to attend our class/rehearsals and
we've expanded into two classes. We also incorporate other acoustic instruments
such as violin, viola, flute, percussion and upright bass. Acoustic guitars
will also be brought into the mix as Benoir has been heading in a Rhys Chatham
inspired direction with large ensemble compositions in the future. FIOS
"Push Pause" produced a feature on our ensemble that aired in
February and can be found at http://youtu.be/u-fZoSFAMDQ
