Under the care and patronage of our tutor, Val Stack, an enthusiastic (and increasingly talented) group of musicians have formed The Silver Ukulele Strummers. Ukulele players extraordinaire. The group has been in existence since early 2010 – a date that seems incredible, considering the expertise they show at their growing number of “gigs” throughout the Manning Valley.
Officially they meet once a week as a U3A class but really they are constantly together at their jams in one home or another and at performances before audiences especially at Retirement Villages.
Val has an eye to the future. A second group of newbies are working with her separately, aiming to graduate to SUS group. More beginners will replace them, also aiming at elevation to performance level.
You can get a taste of their talents by viewing some of their YouTube performances. Click on the appropriate Manning Valley U3A icon
