Sydney Mandolin Orchestra (SMO) celebrates its 90th anniversary with a diverse program of works from several continents showcasing the unique expressive capabilities of mandolins, mandolas, guitars and double bass in an ensemble setting.

Founded in 1932, SMO is the longest running mandolin orchestra in Australia. Over 90 years it has continued to develop its repertoire and unique orchestral sound and this program will pay tribute to that heritage. 

PROGRAM

From the delicate to the bold, this program comprises a mosaic of music especially written and arranged for mandolin and mandolin orchestras that includes works by Vivaldi, Carulli, Ruecker & others and two “World Premieres”.

‘A Bridge Across Time’ – Stephen Lalor
