Senior A Ensemble
The Langley Ukulele Ensemble is now in its 38th year – 32 years under the direction of Peter Luongo, and, for the past 6 years, under the direction of Paul Luongo. During this time the group has developed a reputation at home and abroad for excellence in musical performance. The 25 ensemble members range in age from 13 to 18 years, and are students attending middle school, secondary or post-secondary institutions.
During this past year, the ensemble traveled to Honolulu, Hawaii where they celebrated their 25th Anniversary tour performing at the Sheraton Waikiki resort. Performing as many as 80 concerts per year, they have traveled throughout Canada and the U.S., as well as to Japan. They have performed at many local community events like the CTV Toy Mountain Christmas Event, Global Christmas Wish Breakfasts, Whistler Arts Festival, the Vancouver Opera Festival, and GLOW to name a few. In this coming year, the ensemble plans to return to the Sheraton Waikiki resort in Honolulu, Hawaii for the 26th year, attend and perform at NAMM 2020 in Anaheim California, as well as tour locally within BC.
The group’s motto is “Enriching Lives through Music”. The members are challenged to strive towards excellence in musical performance and to use music as a vehicle through which they can be role models and leaders among their peers. The group members see themselves as musical ambassadors for Canada, British Columbia, and Langley, as well as for youth. They hope to leave audiences with a sense that there is a reason to be hopeful about the future of today’s youth.
