Milwaukee, Wisc. – American mandolin virtuoso Mike Marshall will appear in concert with The Milwaukee Mandolin Orchestra on November 17-18, 2007.

Saturday, November 17 at 7:30 p.m. they appear at the Stoughton Opera House in Stoughton, Wisconsin. Sunday they appear at the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee Recital Hall at 4:00 p.m.

Mike and orchestra will perform his recent composition, "Concerto No. 1 for Mandolin, Mando-cello and Mandolin Orchestra."

This piece is scheduled to be recorded next year, providing the Milwaukee area audience with a special preview of this amazing composition.
