Event Description:

The Oregon Mandolin Orchestra is launching its eighth season with a 2017 Spring Concert Tour of Portland, the Oregon Coast and Southwest Washington, April 21-23.

The orchestra, composed of 24 instruments from the mandolin family and directed by Portland’s leading mandolinist, Brian Oberlin, will perform movements from Mozart’s 3rd and 4th Violin Concertos and Hummel’s Mandolin Concerto, as well as folk music from the Americas.

All three concerts will feature a special guest, mandolin luminary Evan Marshall. Evan will perform mandolin solos in the Mozart and Hummel Concertos. In a special performance, Evan will join forces with Brian Oberlin to play swing, bluegrass and classical as part of their crowd-pleasing duet, Twin Mandolin Slingers.

Founded in 2010, the Oregon Mandolin Orchestra has successfully revived the tradition of community mandolin orchestras popular in cities across North America during the early 20th century. Today, the all-volunteer, Portland-based Orchestra boasts 24 members who play mandolin, mandola, mandocello and mandobass to create a warm, distinctive sound something like musical rain. The Orchestra has performed in Portland, Salem, Hillsboro, Hood River, Pendleton and Vancouver, Wash.
