Jake Shimabukuro

  • How Jake Shimabukuro plays the ukelele: like Hendrix played his guitar, Miles Davis played his trumpet, and like Benjamin Franklin played with reading glasses to create bifocals
  • Meaning: he changes the way people look at the ukelele—which he calls “the underdog of all instruments”—by pushing all four strings into unexpected sonic territory
  • How many fans first discovered him: through his cover of the Beatles’ “While My Guitar Gently Weeps,” which has now reached over 13 million views on YouTube (almost 10 times the population of his native Hawaii)
  • Where you’ve seen Jake: in his own award-winning documentary, Jake Shimabukuro: Life on Four Strings; featured on A Prairie Home Companion; touring with Jimmy Buffett; if you happen to be the Queen of England, you remember that day he played especially for you
  • What to expect: original songs from his chart-busting albums Peace Love Ukelele and Grand Ukelele, mixed with re-imagined covers that might include Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” and Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep”

Zeiterion Theatre

Past rows of seats covered in crimson, past a red carpet that brings out the auditorium’s regality, past a centerpiece chandelier that dangles from the ceiling with the quiet grace of a toddler climbing out of her crib, is a stage. Upon this stage, the Zeiterion Theatre explores the performing arts, hosting national and international performers who enlighten the community to other cultures and inspire the younger population to actively participate in the arts. Every year, Zeiterion, lovingly known as “The Z,” also provides 5,000 free tickets to children and families with low incomes, working to make arts more accessible to all.
