CLASSICAL | Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain 

Though the ukulele is often dismissed to the ranks of the kazoo, the slide whistle, and the jaw harp, this abbreviated little four-string instrument has groups like the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain to save it from obscurity. Formed in 1985, the seven-piece ensemble is full of fleet-fingered lightning and nimble dexterity culminating with virtually every member playing together on one instrument. It's really a lot of fun.

The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain performs Wednesday, September 30, at Kodak Hall at Eastman Theatre, 60 Gibbs Street. 8 p.m. $15-$65. eastmantheatre.org; ukuleleorchestra.com.
