While there are now ukulele orchestras in every corner of the world, these are the originals, celebrating 25 years of strumming and plucking together this year. Playing everything from Nirvana to Tchaikovsky, they come to New Zealand via Carnegie Hall. They also scored one of the fastest sell-outs in BBC Proms history, filling all 7000 seats of London's Royal Albert Hall. Nine to Noon's Kathryn Ryan presents the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain.
