The Ukulele Orchestra of St Andrews (UOSA / St Andrews Ukes) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) charitable organization that was started in 2014. We regularly perform concerts around Panama City in churches, nursing homes, schools, clubs in parades and occasionally airports.  As of this announcement (on June 7th to be precise), we will have just welcomed the inaugural American Airlines direct flight from Charlotte, NC to ECP and we boast the honor of penning Destination Panama City’s tourism theme song. In addition to our stated mission of having fun and spreading the joy of music on the ukulele, we provides ukuleles, equipment and programs to a local elementary schools, after school programs and public libraries to assist with music education.
