Event Details

The Oregon Mandolin Orchestra will be performing in a Summer Special Concert to celebrate the sunny joy and bountiful opportunity of the season.

“This summer’s concert will be a mostly breezy affair with plenty of upbeat offerings,” said Christian McKee, the orchestra’s music director. “The program also will include a ‘goodbye-for-now’ presentation of original music composed for the orchestra and a few sneak peeks at this October’s celebration of Black American Music and mandolinists. “And because we just can’t resist,” McKee said, “there will be some lovely Italian melodies as well!

McKee said Gustav Holst’s “Nocturne” from the “Moorside Suite” was chosen to offer a more contemplative mood, and that the orchestra will give its last performance — for now – of a powerfully moving, specially commissioned piece, “Oregonia,” by the late composer, John Goodin.

“Other pieces will offer a glimpse at our October concert celebrating Black American music in its many forms, most notably two compositions by the great genius of ragtime, Scott Joplin: ‘Bethena’ and ‘Original Rags,’ ” McKee said. “Join us in August for a few surprises and come hear us in the fall!”

Besides an in-person performance at St. Barnabas Episcopal Church, the concert can be livestreamed online through Zoom.
