Classical mandola/mandocellist needed for Cleveland OH performanc

  1. violmando

    I received a call today from a fellow musician in the Cleveland area; he is director of a concert series there and would like someone to perform on solo mandola in October. It is a paid gig. He mentioned something like the Bach Viola da Gamba sonatas on it, which made me think mandocello....I play all 3 of these instruments, but frankly, I'm no solist.

    If anyone is interested, message me here or at my If you want to pass it on, OK, too....

    That's all I know so far.
    Yvonne, a GREAT ensemble player, but no solist.

    OK...if you want more, let me know. It is NOT a good gig...the person had a cancellation and wants the same program that was promised by the original artist. Several pieces, not traditional mandola literature and only $250. However, you MIGHT be able to set your own program....GRRR!

    Not much dough for someone to travel. Good luck to your friend.

    But it did inspire me to order a copy of the da gamba sonatas--it has been decades since I worked on those.

    Yep, I'm not doing this, but it's given me the push to work on some solo repertoire. I have a bunch of it from my double bass/cello days, so I can work on some mandocello chops!
