Ukuleles take center stage at this Torrance festival – Daily News


The small, yet mighty ukulele will get its moment in the spotlight as the Los Angeles International Ukulele Festival returns to the Torrance Cultural Arts Center Sept. 23-24 and The Grand Annex in San Pedro Sept. 25.

“It’s a full day of spreading the joy of ukulele and enjoying the instrument and hearing music of all kinds, all genres played on the ukulele,” said Victoria Vox, a well-known ukulele player and singer-songwriter, who is headlining the main festival event on Saturday, Sept. 24 at the Cultural Arts Center.

Now in its sixth year, the music festival will include about a dozen professional musicians and kicks off Friday evening with a concert at the Art Center’s George Nakano Theater in Torrance. The show will feature ukulele stars Andrew Molina and Brittni Paiva.
