Over 1000 students from 34 Canterbury schools will join together to play in a cheerful festival of massed ukuleles, marimbas and recorders, backed by a live band.

The concert includes brackets featuring just ukuleles, marimbas or recorders, as well as all-in massed pieces featuring the premiere of "Snow Ride" written specially for this combination of instruments by local composer Michael Bell and conducted by Andrew Withington.

The festival is in its 3rd year and is an amalgamation of the Christchurch schools' marimba festival and ukulele festivals.

It is run by Music Education Canterbury in conjunction with Christchurch Civic Music Council.
