The Milwaukee Mandolin Orchestra, along with guest artist Evan Marshall, presents a concert featuring Mozart, Hummel, Brahms, and Telemann, along with several favorite tunes from the traditional mandolin orchestra repertoire.
Evan Marshall, a resident of California, is internationally known for his virtuosity on the mandolin. His performances with symphony orchestras across the country have won him such accolades as:
"An amazing tour de force" - Grand Rapids Press
"I have never [before] heard a mandolin produce such rich, multi-dimensional sounds." - San Antonio Express News
"Brilliant!" - Fort Worth Star Telegram
"Music that set the place on fire!"
Similarly, his solo performances have been met with: "He sounded at times like the Boston Symphony!" (Providence Journal Bulletin) and "The audience was dazzled by his virtuosity." (Pasadena Star News)
Under the musical direction of celebrated classical guitarist Rene Izquierdo, the Milwaukee Mandolin Orchestra is thrilled to bring to its Southeast Wisconsin audiences a program of orchestral works, solo mandolin with orchestra accompaniment, and the amazing solo performance of Evan Marshall. Now celebrating its 115th anniversary, the orchestra regularly performs at music festivals and concert halls around Wisconsin. Twice, the MMO was honored to have appeared live on Garrison Keillor's internationally broadcast radio show, "A Prairie Home Companion".
Tickets are $16 (plus service fee) / $20 at the door.
