WELCOME TO OUR WEBSITE
We are Brighton’s very own mandolin orchestra currently with around 25 players from the City and surrounding areas. The group, which consists of instruments of the mandolin family plus guitars and basses, was founded in 1995 with the goal of reviving the tradition of mandolin orchestras, which were hugely popular in the UK up until the 1930s. However, we now have a very modern approach to repertoire and love to play new compositions and old. Please browse our website to find out more about us. New members are always very welcome.
At last, we have an event to announce! We will be returning to the Brighton Fringe 2022 on Tuesday, May 31st at St George’s Church, Kemp Town.
Our first concert for a while and it should be a good one. It will feature a new composition by Jonathan Brigg called Seafaring Folk. An atmospheric piece, it was written originally for the Sussex Folk Orchestra and we will be joined by two of their players on accordion and cello.
In addition, the program includes a diverse mix of music from folk to Beethoven. Come along and hear what we have to offer.
Tickets available from the Fringe Box Office. £10/£8 including a glass of wine or soft drink.
