Langley ensembles add matinee show Saturday

Coming off a mini Christmas concert tour – of sorts – members of the Langley Ukulele Ensemble finishes off their season this weekend with a pair of concert at home.

After a show earlier this month in Richmond, the two senior uke groups are set to perform Themes of Christmas not once but twice at the Langley Evangelical Free Church on Saturday, Dec. 20.

The Langley Ukulele Association is an organization that teaches young people to achieve excellence through music, said director Paul Luongo, noting that the group has played the world over.

He described the ensemble’s Christmas concert as a “must-see” event.

“Those of you who have not heard the Langley Ukulele Association play before are in for a treat,” he said. “This is truly one of Langley’s gems.”

The first concert is a matinee on Saturday, at 3:30 p.m., then the doors open again at 6:30 p.m. for a 7 p.m. show.

Tickets are available by calling 604-340-8537 or emailing
