Fri., April 12, Uni and Her Ukelele
Mondavi Center Corin Courtyard, 6:30 p.m., no cover
To call Uni—a.k.a. Heather Marie Ellison of Uni and Her Ukelele—“quirky” is incredibly insufficient. She's a 1930s Technicolor damsel with melodic moxie—and a tiny instrument. And everyone is invited to bring their own ukuleles for a free play-along session before the sold-out-but-there-might-be-a-few-tickets-at-the-box-office show of the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain at the Mondavi Center. During the play along, participants will rehearse “Relentlessly in C” and then will play it with the orchestra in Jackson Hall. Look up the orchestra's version of “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” on YouTube if you have any hesitations about the potential awesomeness of this opportunity. 9399 Old Davis Road in Davis, www.unimusic.us.
