A taste of what you missed on Dec. 14, or a preview of next year? Here's the "Sinfonia" movement of Mandolin Messiah. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

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.)

Support your orchestra with a gift to the Seattle Foundation's GiveBIG promotion on May 5. This one-day, online charitable giving event inspires people to give generously to nonprofit organizations that make our region a healthier and more vital place to live. Thanks for lending a hand!

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.

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

This made us laugh out loud.
