Please join us for this delightful concert, featuring the many sounds and styles of the mandolin. Featuring August Watters, John Moser, Ben Torrey, and Celeste McClain, Boston Mandolins is a quartet specializing in classical music composed for all the instruments of the mandolin family: mandolin, mandola and mandocello, as well as guitar. The quartet are led by Berklee School of Music faculty member August Watters, and include some of New England's premier mandolin teachers and performers. You'll be treated to music both composed and improvised that draws on classical, jazz, and bluegrass traditions.
