The Moonlight Mandolin Orchestra

The Moonlight Mandolin Orchestra is based in Cambridge, UK. It is an amateur orchestra for plucked string instruments, featuring mandolins, mandolas, guitars and bass.

We meet fortnightly for rehearsals during term-time, and work towards at least one public performance each term. We are currently planning some exciting new collaborations for 2022 – 23 with other local music groups and soloists!

Autumn 2023 sees us preparing for 2 concerts.

We’re going to Brighton for the weekend of 21st/22nd October,
to rehearse and play a joint concert with the Fretful Federation and American mandolin virtuoso Chris Aquavella.
In the 2nd half of term, we’ll be getting ready for a Christmas concert at
The Histon Baptist Church on 2nd December. There will no doubt be mulled wine, antlers etc.
Do come! – booking details will follow. We’ll be launching our CD as well!

Unlock your inner Moonlight!

We are always keen to recruit new players. If you might be interested in joining us, we’d love to hear from you.
