Benevilla Memory Arts Bistro program is a series of free afternoon arts and culture events specially designed for those with memory loss, their caregivers and their families. The program focuses on interactive activities, socializing, advanced learning and connecting memories with the arts.
“Larry’s Ukuladies” is a musical group of 9 ukin’ women and a very special guy, Larry, who plays the bass ukulele. The group came together through the love for the ukulele instrument and their association with the Sun City Ukulele Club. About 5 years ago, they began getting together at each other’s homes to play, laugh and sing together. The word got out to various clubs and churches in Sun City that there was this fun-loving, ukulele playing group and the calls started coming in. Interacting with their audiences is core to their performances. They love when people laugh, sing and dance with them.
