Back in April 2012 Jean MacLeod’s Greater Syracuse School of Music organized a ukulele sing-in:
So they’ll be running a series of “Ukulele and Ice Cream Therapy” sessions on Wednesday nights this summer, meeting at various ice cream stands and playing together. Which strikes me as a great concept. It’ll be interesting to see where this goes.
Five years later, Jean’s retired and the GSSoM is no more, but Salt City Ukulele is here in its place — organized by Lisa Gaffaney, Kristine Marane, and me. Tonight was the last of six weekly beginners’ ukulele lessons. And Jean was there visiting and guest-teaching. Next week begins rehearsals in earnest for the fifth Ukulele and Ice Cream Therapy tour (we skipped 2014).
Where this goes is forward, looks like.
