SF Mandolin Orchestra - American Counterpoint (San Francisco)
SF Mandolin Orchestra:  American Counterpoint

counterpoint (koun(t)r,point/)
Complimentary ideas, arguments, or themes that illuminate each other when encountered side by side, especially in music.

Contrast is at the heart of great music. Fast and slow, loud and soft, tension and release, the counterpoint of voices - all are prominent in all genres of world music.

American composers in particular use contrast prominently in a variety of unique musical genres. That's why the theme of this SF Mandolin Orchestra season is American Counterpoint. We'll be exploring a variety American music and contrasting it to J.S. Bach's Art of Fugue, one of the most famous works of counterpoint by one of the most popular European composers.

Well encourage you to compare Bach's work with these (and other) American pieces and see what you discover:

George Gershwin's "Prelude II" transcribed for mandolin orchestra.
"Walnut Valley Suite," a three movement piece by award-winning mandolin player and composer Bruce Graybill.
"Happy Birthday Bill Monroe," by Bay Area mandolin legend David Grisman.
The world premiere of "Adagio Misterioso," by our music director Achille Bocus.
Big-band legend Glenn Millers 1939 hit "Moonlight Serenade."
