The Seattle Mandolin Orchestra has started a youth program for children ages 6–10. Learn how you can help.

Big news: the Seattle Mandolin Orchestra has earned official 501(c)(3) status and is now a licensed nonprofit. (We've never made a profit that we're aware of, but at least now we can feel better about it.)
Jan. 2, 2014: We're sad today to announce that longtime orchestra member Eleanor Setterberg has passed away. Eleanor was with us for some 30 years. She and her husband, Don, supported the orchestra in every conceivable way—even letting us rehearse in their basement! We will miss her tremendously.

Our previous CD, Coloratura, is still available. It's a collection of Italian favorites, classical pieces, and art songs featuring soprano Julie Finch! You can order online through CD Baby, Amazon, or iTunes—or do it the old-fashioned way and send us a mail order.

Show your support for the orchestra with a T-shirt featuring our logo. Or make a tax-deductible gift and enjoy the benefits.


Did you find an old mandolin in the closet, or under the bed? Here's some advice.

This made us laugh out loud.

We have to admit: Eddie Van Halen is one of the last people we ever thought we'd see with a Gibson mandobass. It does have a nice Hawaiian scene painted on it.
