The Sydney Mandolin Orchestra (SMO) is excited to announce a new recording project.  Our last recording “Quiver” was released in 2011 and our orchestra and repertoire have changed and grown considerably since then, influenced by new Musical Directors and new members.  We are looking forward to bringing the unique sound of our plucked string orchestra, comprising mandolin family instruments, classical guitar, and double bass, to lovers of fine ensemble music everywhere.In the absence of live performances in 2020-21 due to the pandemic, the SMO has been rehearsing works for the recording over several months, with production of the recording planned to be completed by mid-2021. The recording will be available as a physical CD, and a downloadable format.

The Repertoire

In formulating the repertoire the SMO has settled on an international theme featuring works representing different countries and cultures, including:

·        The Australis Suite by Sydney based composer and mandolin virtuoso Dr. Stephen Lalor,

·        Two traditional Yiddisher Songs arranged by Lalor,

·        European Suite by Konrad Wölki,

·        Die Specknerin by Wilhelm Mohr,

·        Thema de Soto by Mark Davis,

·        I Folkton by Olof Næslund.

Check out the campaign video to get a small taste of the music we will be including on the CD!

The Orchestra

The Sydney Mandolin Orchestra was founded in 1932 and is currently the longest running mandolin orchestra in Australia. It is a community orchestra that is open to musicians of all skill levels and performs a variety of music from around the world. The instruments in the orchestra consist of: mandolins, mandolas, classical guitars and double bass, but we are also sometimes joined by other plucked strings such as the pipa and oud.
