One of Hawai‘i's finest ‘ukulele instructors and performers will be sharing stories about his musical education and his role as an ‘ukulele instructor, and will perform six of his signature songs at Paliku Theatre. This event is free and open to the public.

With a repertoire of over 1,000 songs, Gordon Mark goes beyond any perceived limitations of the ‘ukulele, playing jazz standards and classical pieces to the delight of audiences. Mark has performed as a soloist throughout Hawai‘i — most notably with the Honolulu Symphony. He is recognized as one of the state’s foremost ‘ukulele instructors.
