The Aurora Mandolin Orchestra returns to the San Francisco Public Library

The sounds of old North Beach are coming to the Koret Auditorium this Saturday, November 6th.

In their 3rd program in 3 years the Aurora Mandolin Orchestra, will play from their repertoire of traditional and semi-classical Italian, Spanish and Russian works. The orchestra for this outing will consist of approximately twenty-three professional and amateur musicians playing mandolin, mandola, mandocello, guitar, string bass, accordion, flute and percussion.

In addition to the musical delights, there will also be a demonstration of a tango (La Cumparsita) and waltz, (composed by Shostakovich), performed by two agile-footed musicians.

This program is supported by The Friends of the San Francisco Public Library. All library programs are free and open to the public.
