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.

In 2021-22 we are doing our best to get back to our normal programme of fortnightly rehearsals, with at least one public performance each term.

In December 2021 we very much enjoyed our first public concert for 2 years, at Stapleford Granary! In the Easter Term of 2022, we will be preparing for a concert in collaboration with award-winning guitarist Daniela Rossi. A week later, at the beginning of April, we’re hoping to travel as a group to Edinburgh, to take part in the BMG Festival. Looking forward into the Summer Term, we will be putting on a summer concert as part of Histon Feast Week.

Our next concert is at Cambridge Buddhist Centre with Daniela Rossi, on March 26th.

Unlock your inner Moonlight!

We are keen to recruit new players in 2021-22. If you might be interested in joining us, we’d love to hear from you.
