Aquile Ukulele Festival Events
Founded in the 2nd century B.C. in northern Italy, Vicenza prospered under Venetian rule from the early 15th to the end of the 18th century. The work of Andrea Palladio (1508–80), based on a detailed study of classical Roman architecture, gives the city its unique appearance. Palladio’s urban buildings, as well as his villas, scattered throughout the Veneto region, had a decisive influence on the development of architecture. His work inspired a distinct architectural style known as Palladian, which spread to England and other European countries, and also to North America.

Charm City celebrates that most charming of instruments “ the mighty uke! Born in Hawaii in the 1880s, but with roots from Portugal, this jewel of the Jazz Age, and a staple of Canadian's musical education in British Columbia, the uke temporarily lost steam post Tiny Tim only to rise again in the early '90s. Today we gather a cast of celebrated uke players who have dedicated themselves to exploring the unpretentious little instrument's full range for an afternoon of hands on workshops and an evening of wondrous performances.

Just browsing over both books, they look fantastic!
