About this Campaign

The Peebles Ukulele Club officially started in the spring of 2018; the excitement level surrounding our club has surpassed all expectations and we could not be happier about this. Currently, we have 25 4th and 5th grade students that are active members in the Ukulele Club. The kids have enjoyed performing during special occasions at school in the lobby area, during the orchestra concerts in the winter and spring, and have just recently performed at the Celebration of Us event at NASH and The Strawberry Festival at St. John’s Lutheran Church. We meet every Thursday morning from 8:15-9:00; it is the best way to start our day! We have plans to perform more consistently next year throughout our community because we realize that our music can bring so much joy to others and it is a great way to give back to our community. Some of the venues where we are currently looking to perform next year include Allegheny County Courthouse in December (as part of their holiday performance series), Vincentian Home, and Sunrise of McCandless. We would also be happy to perform for the NA Foundation during one of your regular meetings. Currently, we are in need of a few things to make sure that our club can move forward through the coming years. We would like to purchase a few more ukuleles so that we can open up our club to more students. We also need to purchase ukulele bags so that our instruments can be transported safely home and back to school, as well as to all of our performances. Tuners, picks and replacement strings are also necessary just to keep up with instrument maintenance. We are also in need of portable stands and a small cart to transport them to our performances. We have also enjoyed using a digital piano, when available, to help us with harmonic support during our rehearsals and performances. Having a digital piano of our own to use would be wonderful. This digital piano will be utilized in a variety of settings at Peebles, including during all of our orchestra and choral concerts, ukulele rehearsals and performances, and during homogeneous string lessons.
