Free refreshments of wine and cheese will be served at the end of the concert.
The Baltimore Mandolin Orchestra was first organized in 1924 by German-born conductor, composer, and music teacher Conrad Gebelein (at left, ca. 1925) and performs numerous concerts in the Baltimore/Washington D.C. metropolitan area throughout the year.
Beatrice Gilbert has been the featured vocal soloist with the Baltimore Mandolin Orchestra since 1994. She can be heard on the BMO's CD "City by the Sea." She is a popular guest soloist at local churches and has performed professionally with many organizations and in many venues, including traditional Italian-American festivals in Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Washington, D.C.
Net proceeds from the concert will be donated to the Tanzanian Children's Project (TCP) which was founded to provide financial support for health care and education in a small community of Tanzania. Orphans in particular will benefit from these services. TCP supports the Mahida Catholic Church located in the Rombo District of Tanzania under the leadership of Reverend Emmanuel Lyimo who is responsible for the daily operations and management of the projects being funded.
