The San Francisco Mandolin Orchestra is a plucked string orchestra with 15-25 members playing instruments of the mandolin family (mandolin, mandola and mandocello), as well as guitar, viola da gamba and double bass.
We recently celebrated its tenth birthday! Our Fall 2016 season “Reflections” is one for reflecting on a decade of beautiful music, and considering a future full of potential. Achille Bocus will conduct the orchestra in a joyous revisiting of many of the pieces from past programs that our audiences have enjoyed, including selections from:
- Dvořák: Symphony for the New World
- Barber: Adagio for Strings
- Calace: Serenata Gaia
- Saint-Saëns: The Carnival of the Animals
We’ll perform this repertoire in Palo Alto and San Francisco:
Tickets are $18 (general) / $10 (students and seniors) and can be purchased at the door or via Brown Paper Tickets. Concerts are family-friendly, and admission is free for children 6 and under. As always, you can read about the orchestra at www.sfmandolin.org and connect with us on Facebook.
