“This concert is a rare opportunity to hear a new work for the mandolin in an orchestral setting, written and performed by one of the instrument’s leading exponents,” said Martin Stillion of the Seattle Mandolin Orchestra. This is a 3 movement work that he composed and has offered to mandolin orchestras anywhere in the world. If they play it, he will come conduct and perform with them.
