Ukulele maestros return to Ajijic

An enjoyable evening is guaranteed when renowned musicians and music educators Daniel Ward and Heidi Swedberg take the stage of the Ajijic Cultural Center on Wednesday, January 27, 7 p.m. 

Their concert, “Turning the World Around … Making the World a Better Place Four Strings at a Time,” will not only showcase their musical talents and personalities but also include a few numbers with the 30 students of the Academie de Ukuleles de la Laguna.

This flourishing lakeside academy started life following a ukulele demonstration given by Ward and Swedberg in January 2015. 

Ward is excited about returning to Ajijic for a second teachng assignment at a week-long ukulele retreat.    

“I’m wowed by the progress I hear the programs that started just a short year ago have made and can’t wait to see and hear them in action,” he says.  “It certainly will make for a rich celebration.” 

An accomplished musician, composer and educator, Ward spends much of his time traveling and playing at ukulele retreats and seminars, as well as at shows and events featuring other musical genres.

“Best of all is a trip like this where I can spend time with people who want to sit down and enjoy making music together,” he says. “It makes me feel like I am with family.”
