We play music of many styles arranged for mandolin orchestra. This includes transcriptions of classical music, mandolin orchestra arrangements from the early 1900s, modern compositions for mandolin orchestra, and arrangements of popular tunes.
Mandolin, mandola, octave mandolin, mandocello, guitar, and bass.
We play at park concerts, senior homes, art festivals, churches, and other venues.
