The Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra
Mary D'Angelo Performing Arts Center
Friday, March 04, 2016 - 7:30 pm
Renowned for their winning combination of charming Kiwi humor, disarmingly small ukuleles and sublime musicality, the Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra is hailed as New Zealand’s “hottest music/comedy ensemble.” Co-founded by Grammy and Oscar winner Bret McKenzie of Flight of the Conchords fame, WIUO has perfected a formula for joy and lasting magic wherever they go, armed with high-octane ukulele skills, gorgeous vocal harmonies and flamboyant costumes.
The band’s comedic banter is spontaneous, and when they burst into song, the sweet sounds can silence a room in a nanosecond, or bring a crowd of thousands to their feet. Featuring songs made famous by artists such as Justin Timberlake, the Beatles, Cyndi Lauper and Kings of Leon, alongside a traditional South Pacific repertoire, this is ukulele as it’s never been played before.
