Ukulele Kids Club Uses Artful Ukuleles to Bring Joy and Healing to Sick Children Worldwide

Fox 32 Chicago | Jan 27 2021

The Buffalo Grove Park District’s Community Arts Center is full of gorgeous hand-painted ukuleles that will help sick children across the world.

Members of our UKC community have taken the ukulele to the next level with a community project that weaves art into the transformative power of music. The BG Singers have been a partner to the Ukulele Kids Club since June 2020. After four years of not being able to host a community music event, they are back with a not only 3 live music shows but also an art installation to support their local community and the UKC. Meet Linda Rosen and Cathy Novak as interviewed by Fox 32 Chicago.
