Langley Ukulele Ensemble

The Langley Ukulele Ensemble is now in its 38th year – 32 years under the direction of Peter Luongo, and, for the past five years, under the direction of his son, Paul Luongo. During this time the group has developed a reputation at home and abroad for excellence in musical performance. The 20 ensemble members range in age from 13 to 18 years, and are students attending various middle and secondary schools.

The group’s motto is “Enriching Lives through Music”. The members are challenged to strive towards excellence in musical performance and to use music as a vehicle through which they can be role models and leaders among their peers. The group members see themselves as musical ambassadors for Canada, British Columbia, and Langley, as well as for youth. They hope to leave audiences with a sense that there is reason to be hopeful about the future of today’s youth.
