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.
The orchestra will be attending the biennial BMG Festival in Cambridge, April 5th -7th at Churchill College. Some of our members will be taking part in the British Fretted Orchestra performance on the opening night and the whole orchestra will repeat our recent performance of Shadow of a Golden Dream on Sunday. During the course of the weekend members will attend workshops and concert performances.
