April 2022 – BMG Festival in Edinburgh

Hard on the heels of the concert at the Buddhist Centre came the BMG Festival. 10 of the group travelled up to Edinburgh to take part in workshops and competitions and generally mingle with other mandolin orchestras from round the country. The previous Festival, in 2020, did not take place due to the arrival of COVID, so we had not all met up for quite a few years.

It was a great weekend and the MMO brought back some silverware, winning the Ensemble Competition with our rendition of the Berceuse from Faure’s “Dolly Suite”.
