Ukestra was founded by Brenda Beaulieu about seven years ago. Initially, the group was small, but membership blossomed after Tom Rogers joined the group and created a Facebook page. The group opened to the public and they started growing.
Ukestra's mission is to gather people of all ages, abilities and walks of life to enjoy playing ukuleles and singing together in a welcoming and joyful atmosphere.
The members love their ukulele's and they generally meet twice a month to jam with their ukes, socialize and learn. Ukestra periodically performs for appreciative audiences.
