Baltimore Mandolin Orchestra

Returns to DCA

on June 5, 2016

The Baltimore Mandolin Orchestra (BMO) will present a concert

in the George B. Todd Performance Hall

on Sunday,

June 5 at 3 p.m.

 This is the second time BMO has come to Cambridge, as it was the first concert performance on the

second floor when the upstairs venue opened in 2014.   Mandolin orchestras were enormously popular all across

America at the beginning of the 20th century.  The BMO was founded in 1924 by Baltimore band leader and music

teacher, Conrad Gebelein.  The orchestra’s current director is Kristin Turner, who took over the baton in 2011.

 (Cambridge’s own Joy Staniforth is a member of the orchestra.)

Tickets for the Sunday afternoon concert are

$12.00 for DCA members and $15.00 for non-members.  Children under 12 are free with a paid adult admission.

 To purchase tickets call 410-228-7782.
