Concert: Minnesota Mandolin Orchestra
Monday, August 12, 2019
The Minnesota Mandolin Orchestra is a plucked-string community orchestra performing golden-age mandolin (1880-1924 marches and waltzes), contemporary classical, and mid-century pop music around the Twin Cities since 1991. They have three rules: play a Beatles song in every set, no politics, and no banjos. They field around 24 mandolin, mandola, mandocello, guitar, and bass players and feature solos from flutists, harmonica, and other instruments. Most of their performances also feature local composers, e.g. Sherry Ladig, John Goodin, Howard Weeks, Joan Griffith, Dave Ingham....
