The Michigan Mandolin Orchestra presents their 2023 Christmas Concert Series! The Grand Rapids-based 16-piece orchestra is composed of mandolins, mandolas, mandocellos, guitars, and bass and is led by Michigan mandolinist Brian Oberlin. The concert will include a collaboration with the Kalamazoo Mandolin and Guitar Orchestra (together, a musical crew of 30+ musicians), the epic first movement of Schubert’s “Unfinished Symphony,” Leroy Anderson’s masterfully orchestrated medley “A Christmas Festival,” selections from Tchaikovsky’s “Nutcracker Suite” and Mendelssohn’s “Christmas Pieces,” Christmas duets played by Brian Oberlin and Sallie Bacon, and other Christmas favorites that swing and sing.
