We hope that everyone has had a great summer so far. Now that school is back in session we will be starting up lessons once again at Hillcrest Elementary School for ages 8+. We will be offering Beginner and Intermediate/Advanced classes. Ukuleles will be provided to use at the lessons upon request (please mention this during registration), but are limited. Our good friends at KSM Music will also be offering a 15% discount to those who purchase ukuleles to be used at the UUF lessons. For more information run over to http://utahukefest.com/hillcrest-registration/ now to secure your spot and join in on some ukulele awesomeness!

Mahalo!

Mahalo nui loa to Denelle Manoa for all of the hard work she put into the festival in organizing all of the vendors, concessions, keeping things running smoothly at the event, manning the welcome booth relentlessly, making sure that those that need to be checked in is checked in, entertainment is organized as well as all of the work she put into the festival during the year like contacting vendors, keeping social media updated, being an awesome mother at home and coordinating all of the participants prior to the event. Its a lot of work and I appreciate her effort and sacrifice. Again Mahalo Denelle
