   Every Thursday during the summer months, Hochstein Music School puts on a free concert at High Falls' Granite Mills Park. Can you believe yesterday was the last concert for 2013?! CURSE YOU, SUMMER! YOU'RE TOO SHORT!

Anyway, as a fun Friday diversion, I thought I'd share just a minute of video from this final performance with the Rochester Ukulele Orchestra. (co-starring: Old Man SpongeBob, Dancing Elvis Kid, and Jumpy Jumping Guy)...

The song is "I've Just Seen a Face" by The Beatles.

is an offshoot of the Ukulele Support Group which meets at Bernunzio's Uptown Music every month in Rochester. A small group of individuals were interested in taking their uke playing to another level and possibly performing locally, and the RUO was born. The group has grown to almost 20 members, playing everything from folk and classical to pop and rock music.
