Aurora Mandolin Orchestra


Aurora Mandolin Orchestra


A semi-professional orchestra of approximately 30 musicians that plays for senior clubs or other organizations in the Bay Area. Please call to book the orchestra in advance. Anyone who can read music and play an instrument in the mandolin family (including guitar) may join. The orchestra rehearses every Wednesday evening (7-9:30 pm) at Veterans' Memorial Senior Center, 1455 Madison Avenue, Redwood City. Observers are welcome. An Aurora Mandolin Ensemble has been formed of 8 to 12 musicians or less for other venues that cannot accommodate a large orchestra. Diverse multi-cultural music is played which includes tangos, rhumbas, waltzes, mazurkas. The musical repertoire also includes show tunes as well as semi-classical selections and contemporary music.
