The Orpheus Mandolin Orchestra comes to us from Bloomington, Illinois, where it grew out of old-time jam session that attracted a remarkable number of mandolin players. The Orchestra’s repertoire includes popular turn-of-the-century songs, ragtime, classical, jazz, and bluegrass. The Orchestra is beloved in its community and plays for the sheer love of music, but advertises itself as “open to all high class engagements.” New members welcome.
