Oregon Mandolin Orchestra

The Orchestra, composed of 25 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.

With the emergence of folk music, the mandolin regained popularity, and mandolin orchestras have since burgeoned. Today, many U.S. cities have mandolin orchestras, and their presence abroad, which never waned, also continues to grow. The available body of music for mandolin orchestras is vast, ranging from classical to swing to jazz and everything in between.

The Oregon Mandolin Orchestra is partnered with the Glenn and Viola Walters Cultural Arts Center in Hillsboro. The Walters Cultural Arts Center is a magnificent facility, borne out of the same ideals as the Oregon Mandolin Orchestra —to nurture the growth of music and art as an integral part of the community.

One of the primary goals of the Oregon Mandolin Orchestra is to provide unique performance and educational opportunities for music enthusiasts of all ages and levels of expertise.

The Oregon Mandolin Orchestra has approximately thirty members and is comprised of mandolins, mandolas, mandocellos, and double basses. Within the Oregon Mandolin Orchestra is a smaller group of musicians—the Oregon Mandolin Chamber Orchestra—which rehearses and performs with, as well as separately from, the entire Orchestra, and, occasionally, hosts
