Oregon Mandolin Orchestra’s 2021 Comeback Concert Sept. 12
September 12, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm$10
We’re back – in a big way!
Emerging from a long COVID-driven layoff, the Oregon Mandolin Orchestra will be performing live Sept. 12, for the first time since December 2019.
The concert can be live-streamed online at 3 p.m. Sunday through Zoom.
Coming back to the stage is exciting for us and we will be celebrating by performing the world premiere of a new composition commissioned by the OMO. The concert’s wide-ranging program, crafted by OMO Music Director Christian McKee, also will give voice to pieces from several different musical eras and genres, from Ragtime and Duke Ellington to Django Reinhardt and Gustav Holst.

Our world-premiere, an original composition, entitled “Oregonia,” was written and arranged by John Goodin, an Iowa-based composer whose work has been performed by mandolin orchestras around the world. “Oregonia” was created to evoke the sweeping landscapes of the Oregon Country and the lives of the people who call it home.
Thank you for joining us. We hope you enjoy our return to the live stage as much as we have getting ready for it.
