Ukelele Choir

Watch out, all you hand bell choirs. There’s a ukulele choir at Grace Avenue United Methodist Church in Frisco, Texas. And it’s growing fast.
This Hawaiian shirt-clad cloud of witnesses played at General Conference in Portland, Oregon, wowing an exhibit hall audience on the last day.
The choir members, ages early elementary to AARP plus, played a 30-minute set that ranged from gospel to folk songs to U2’s “Where the Streets Have No Name.”
At the strumming and singing center of everything was the Rev. Joe Stobaugh, the group’s founder and leader, and executive minister of worship and arts at Grace Avenue United Methodist.
