    Default Rochester NY Mandolin Orchestra debuts Sept. 14

    Over the past year, Tom Napoli here in Rochester has turned a series of impromptu Saturday sessions at Bernunzio's Uptown Music, into an organized and rehearsed ensemble, with membership varying from a dozen to nearly 20, and a full range of instrumentation -- mandolin, mandola, octave mandolin, mandocello and mando-bass (me), plus guitar. The Rochester Mandolin Orchestra will make its public debut on Saturday, Sept. 14, 11 a.m. at the North Winton Village Festival of the Arts[ (note that the website still shows last year's entertainment schedule; it should be updated ASAP).

    Repertoire for the first concert includes (if it can be fitted into a 50-minute gig):

    Ashokan Farewell
    Bacio D'Angelo
    Flavia
    (a mazurka)
    O Mio Babbino Caro
    Jenny Lind Polka
    When I Marry You
    (a waltz)
    Stella (another mazurka)
    Songe d'Amour apres le bal
    Potatisvals
    (a weird-rhythm "waltz" by Puccini)

    Facebook page for the orchestra. We're also looking forward to a mandolin workshop by Jay Ungar on Saturday, Sept. 8, at the Turtle Hill Folk Festival.
