Oregon Mandolin Orchestra Spring 2017 Tour comes to the Liberty Theatre in Astoria:
Saturday, April 22 at 7:30pm.
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.
As usual, the Orchestra will feature a special guest and this tour will boast none other than 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 as they play swing, bluegrass and classical as part of their crowd-favorite 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 throughout Oregon.
Astoria tickets are $18 for adults, $15 for students, seniors and military and can be purchased online through http://bit.ly/2kxT0gT
