NANAS AND PAPAS debut at The Garden Home

The Nanas and Papas, a new Ukulele Group from Whisperwood Villa made their debut today at The Garden Nursing Home, This was the first venture out of their own facility to play for another group and they were absolutely fabulous.  Leah Ziegler and Darlene Acorn , two members of the SMUG Ukulele Orchestra , have been working with the group since January and it is obvious they have honed The Nanas and Papas into star performers; all 15 of them. They played a variety of songs, some that are mentioned in the caption of the photos below, and continued to play for 40 minutes to an audience that not only filled the activity room, but spilled out to the dining room as well. Leah, in her final remarks to the audience, explained how easy it is to take up the ukulele which provided hours of enjoyment for the residents of Whisperwood Villa as well as many other community care homes in the area.
