Club corner: The Royal Ukulele Club plays for more than just Queens

ukulele club at Levine Children's HospitalThe Royal Ukulele Club offers a serene, exciting experience for students to explore their musical passion and satisfy their desire to keep music alive even during the busiest times of the semester.

Ashlyn Main, president of the ukulele club, greatly appreciates the opportunity to practice her ukulele at bi-weekly meetings with other students in preparation to perform for the greater Queens community.

Not only do they put on performances for school events, but they go out into Charlotte and share their love for music with others. They recently performed for local nursing homes, although their favorite place is the nearby Levine Children’s Hospital.

Due to a great relationship with the Seacrest Studios at the children’s hospital, they are able to go and play Disney songs and classic ukulele tunes to entertain kids while doing what they love. Joining the club is simple, neither a ukulele nor prior experience is required.

“Give us an hour of your time, and you will be able to walk out knowing more than a dozen ukulele tunes,” said Main.

The club will be fully represented at the Annual Arts Appreciation week alongside many other art clubs here at Queens. They will be doing giveaways, putting on performances, and spreading awareness of arts on campus. The events will be held Monday, March 11 through Friday, March 15.  

Anyone with questions or who may be interested in joining can reach out to maina@queens.edu for more information.
