Event Details

The Sydney Mandolin Orchestra (SMO) celebrates its 90th anniversary with a diverse program of works from several continents showcasing the unique expressive capabilities of mandolins, mandolas, guitars and double bass in an ensemble setting. Founded in 1932, SMO is the longest running mandolin orchestra in Australia. Over 90 years it has continued to develop its repertoire and unique orchestral sound and this program will pay tribute to that heritage. SMO gratefully acknowledges the support of the New South Wales government through its CreateNSW program. PROGRAM From the delicate to the bold, this program comprises a mosaic of music especially written and arranged for mandolin and mandolin orchestras including two “World Premieres”. Stephen Lalor: A Bridge Across Time Commissioned by SMO for its 90th Anniversary, Dr Stephen Lalor playfully traverses SMO’s musical repertoire since its’ founding. Chris Acquavella: Remembrance of a Beautiful Soul A sublime homage to the life of the late and great English mandolinist, educator and composer Alison Stephens.

Featured non-Australian music: Chris Acquavella, Remembrance of a Beautiful Soul (World Premiere)
