Some mighty tuneful sounds flowed out of the Duncan Showroom Sunday, Dec. 22 as the Langley Ukulele Ensemble’s 10-14 year olds played and sang their way into the hearts of their audience.

These talented kids were over on Vancouver Island for a little roadtrip and fitted in a couple of concerts in Duncan between gigs in the Victoria area.

The Ensemble has been around for years, and, with quality as job one, the students learn a great deal as they work their way up the levels.
