The Australian Ukulele Orchestra (AUO) is a small group of talented musicians from NSW. Based in Sydney but with members also from Newcastle and Port Macquarie, the group is unique to the Australian ukulele scene. They perform multi-part arrangements of compositions from Handel to Fleetwood Mac, Tchaikovsky to Michael Jackson. Formed in 2019 and just before COVID restrictions kicked in the Orchestra was previously known as The Outlaws and had performed for several years at ukulele festivals on the East Coast. During the two NSW COVID lockdowns the Orchestra produced entertaining videos of some of their repertoire available on You Tube and via their Facebook Page. In recent times the Orchestra has supplemented its pure ukulele line-up with vocals and percussionists. Demonstrating that music is for all people, the group sports members with careers in teaching, education administration, banking, retirement and health sciences.
