"The workshops we attended were superb - can’t say enough about them and couldn’t even image more perfect sessions! Informative, entertaining, clear and concise. They managed their time perfectly, Did not stray off topic, and provide just the right amount of information - not overly complex! Well done."

"This was my second time at the Allegheny Ukulele Soiree and I loved it all over again! The sessions were educational, the people kind and welcoming, the vendors had great things to buy and the concerts were awesome. I can't wait to see what next year brings!"

"I was a bit on the fence about going because a lot of Uke Fests are kinda dusty with old tunes and people strumming and noodling all over the place. This Soirée was nothing like I have ever done before. So many classes on theory, singing, mikes and video, and things I had never done before. Learning from some of the best and them watching them play at night was pretty cool. I still can't believe how much I learned from the classes and from the other attendees. Good group of people, very welcoming and fun."
