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.)

It's here: our holiday CD, Rejoice. Covering the spectrum from G. F. Handel to Irving Berlin, Rejoice offers a taste of our popular holiday concerts at Seattle's Ballard Library. Featuring coloratura soprano Julie Finch. Download from CDBaby or order the CD today.

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.
