With a range of ukuleles, drums, and guitars, the Ukulele Club harmonizes together in preparation for the Heritage Fair at Carlmont.

As president, Sedona Regan, a senior, leads her team to play to their full capabilities, and on March 1, the members will perform a piece they created from a combination of multiple songs.

The members of the clubs have many actions to take to fully be prepared for their upcoming performance.

“To get ready for the Heritage Fair, we’re all going to work on memorizing the lyrics and the chords to the piece we put together, and we will most likely be rehearsing entrances and exits within the next week,” said Valentina Baehrle, a sophomore and member of the Ukulele Club.

Practice makes perfect, especially for Ukulele Club as they prepare for a complicated and challenging song. However, with the positive environment, impressive viewpoints, and a surplus of talent, they are on the right track, according to the members of the club.

Members of the Ukulele club stress the need to not only have musical talent but contain a desire to play.

“What makes Ukulele Club so great is that we have so many creative and talented students who simply love playing the ukulele. When it comes to the Heritage Assembly, we always deliver such great performances because we play our piece as if we are just having a jam sesh with each other,” said Regan.

The collaboration between members makes for a welcoming environment, and, according to Regan, this is a vital reason for the Ukulele Club’s success. Along with the positivity, the club also gives a chance for students to express themselves and have a great time playing the instruments they love.

Ukuleles are the driving force behind the club, however, club members also play other instruments.

“I think along with adding a different sound, adding different instruments adds to the music. Adding drums especially helps keep the whole club in time and feeling tight as a group,” said Soren Hawkins, a senior and the only drummer in the club.

According to Hawkins, drums are a crucial part of the success of the club’s performance during the Heritage Fair setting a rhythm and tempo for the group to follow.

Regan said, “We don’t see the club as something we have to do every week but something we get to do every week because we all enjoy making music.”
