    Default 2018 Convention of the Classical Mandolin Society of America

    Hello, classical fans as well as the many other genres represented here!

    This is the start of the thread for news on the CMSA's 2018 Convention.

    Our destination this year is Santa Rosa California! Come enjoy wine country beginning November 13th through Saturday November 18th.

    Our very able hosts this year are the Aurora Mandolin Orchestra, the Gravenstein Mandolin Ensemble and the San Francisco Mandolin Orchestra.

    You can make your hotel reservations now. We do expect to sell out this year once our performers are announced.

    The price for a standard room is $139 per night before taxes. This rate is good for 3 days before AND after the convention.

    You can make your reservations using this link:

    Looking forward to seeing you there! And stay tuned for more information as it breaks!

    Wish I could come, but it's just too far away. I'll enjoy reading about it and all of the activities though!

    This one is very close to home, and I already love the Flamingo.

    I would love to go again. I only go when i can drive there in one day. It would be great to meet my Californian cohorts but... ah, someday.

    Hour drive or thereabouts from the conference center to the Mandolin Winery headquarters. But of course lots of great vino in that part of the country.

    Looking forward to meeting up with old friends and friends I donít know yet. What could be better in the fall than wine, old Friends, Mandolin, More Wine, MORE Mandolin & new friends. This is going to be a great convention.

    "We do expect to sell out this year...." Will the number of tickets sell out, or just the number of rooms at the hotel?

    I can answer that question as a member of the local convention committee. The reserved block of discount hotel rooms will certainly sell out. The convention itself is not expected to. We are excited to host it, 'come play with us'!
