The Minnesota Mandolin Orchestra is excited about our upcoming concert at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum on July 17th. We'll perform at the Ordway Picnic Shelter from 1:30 - 3 pm.
The setlist will feature music by mandolinist, composer and Minnesotan Peter Ostroushko of Prairie Home Companion fame. In addition to works by Peter, we’re featuring a new composition by our composer-in-residence, Sherry Ladig. Her "Waltz for Peter Ostroushko" is a lovely tune. The setlist also includes work by our very own Ben Gieseke-- a local to the Chaska area. He’s a fantastic player and we’re excited to share his composition, “Defiant.”
There is a fee to enter the Arboretum, so plan to take in the lovely walking paths and gardens either before or after the concert. You can purchase tickets to the Arboretum online at https://arb.umn.edu, or call (612) 301-6775.
Hope to see you there!
