The Moonlight Mandolin Orchestra
is an amateur orchestra for plucked string instruments,
featuring mandolins, mandolas, guitars and double bass.
We are based in Histon, near Cambridge, UK.
After many months of having to rehearse remotely, we are starting to meet face to face again – our programme will evolve as we get back to normal. Check the Calendar above for up-to-date details.
And meanwhile here is one of the videos we made during lockdown -“La Partida”!
In normal times, we rehearse together fortnightly, on Thursday evenings, and work towards at least one public performance each term. We also organise various social, musical and educational get-togethers, including occasional workshops with visiting professional players.
We often share concert evenings with other local instrumental groups and choirs, and have sometimes collaborated with professional soloists.
Some members of the orchestra compete at the BMG Festival and also take part in the British National Fretted Orchestra.
UNLOCK YOUR INNER MOONLIGHT! As we move out of lockdown, we are recruiting new players once more. If you might be interested in joining us, we’d love to hear from you. Check the Join Us menu above for more details.
