Parkland Truro Ukulele Group

March 10, 2020 New Beginnings

Learning a new instrument may be challenging at any age, but Parkland Truro residents are up to the task and ready to rock and roll!

The former Parkland Truro ukulele group, or “uke group”, started eight years ago after a number of ukulele players performed for residents. They enjoyed the performance so much that they decided to give it a try themselves!

Whispers of interest turned into outright excitement leading up to the first scheduled class.

The uke group started with eight residents and instructor Angela Dwyer-James. As classes got underway, the soothing sound of ukulele music filled the halls.

As the program progresses, the group continued to share their love of music by recruiting more talent and inspiring others to try something new.

Much like all of the greats, someone wants to start a band, so they canvas the halls with sign-up sheets looking for like-minded souls who are ready to put in the work and find harmony.

The group came together to laugh, sing and learn a new skill each week and fill hallways of Parkland Truro with the amazing sounds of ukulele music.
