The Classical Mandolin Society of America meets annually to promote the art of classical mandolin. In 2018 the convention comes to Sonoma County for the first time, from November 14-18th! There are four days of mandolin and guitar workshops and En Mass Orchestra rehearsals culminating in public performances Friday, November 16th and Saturday, November 17th. The Friday, November 16th performance features Dorina Frati, an internationally known mandolinist from Italy, as well as regional mandolin groups. The Saturday, November 17th performance features the over 120 piece En Mass Mandolin Orchestra under the direction of Dr. James Bates. This is the only 2018 North American performance of a mandolin orchestra of this size, and the wonderful sound is not to be missed!
