About Strum Strike and Blow 2022
Wednesday August 10th 2022
Strum, Strike and Blow is an exciting amalgamation of the ChCh Marimba Festival and ChCh Uke Fest which will feature over 1000 students playing marimbas, ukuleles. The Festival is run by Music Education Canterbury and Christchurch Civic Music Council and is in its 8th year and has usually been held in the Christchurch Arena.
Once schools have registered they are given access to the music which will generally involve 4-5 individual pieces for ukuleles, recorders and marimba and a couple of massed items for all three groups of instruments.
The music caters for all levels of experience and when performed live at the festival event, is backed by a professional band.
We run workshops for teachers and have plenty of rehearsal material available.
Schools rehearse together during the day between 9:30am and 2pm then perform together in a 75 minute family-friendly concert on August 10th 2022. from 7pm-8:15pm
