Event

San Francisco Mandolin Orchestra's PASSION Concert
The repertoire from our 16th season presents Passion in many guises: gentle but profound echoes of love in "A Time for Us," the love theme by Nino Rota written for Franco Zeffirelli's 1968 film, "Romeo and Juliet"; mournful, throbbing "Elegia" by 19th Century mandolin composer, Rafaelle Calace; warm and intimate tones in Rakastava (aka "The Lover") from Finnish composer, Jean Sibelius. We have two contrasting Argentinian tangos: the delightful "Por Una Cabeza" by Carlos Gardel, immortalized by Al Pacino in the film "Scent of a Woman"; and the fiery "Libertango" from another of the Greats, Astor Piazzolla. And for our Halloween-time concerts, who can resist the plucked string version of Camille Saint-Saƫns', Danse Macabre?

San Francisco Mandolin Orchestra is a plucked string orchestra with 15-25 members, playing instruments of the mandolin family (mandolin, mandola and mandocello), with guitar, viola da gamba and double bass, conducted by Nicola Swinburne.

At our October 20th concert, we are proud to welcome our soloist Carlo Aonzo (www.carloaonzo.com) from Savona, Italy. Carlo is a virtuoso mandolinist and one of the most prominent performers of the Neapolitan-style mandolin.
