Mandolin New England

Mandolin New England
Mandolin New England is an organization consisting of members of Adam Sweet's Classical Group class in Granby, MA and colleagues and friends from New York, western Mass and Rhode Island.  The group performs concerts in Hadley, South Hadley, Holyoke, Northampton, and Granby MA.

The group is free to join!  If you play mandolin, mandola, mandocello or bass, we'd love to have you with us.  SMS 413-561-2275 any time, or email sweetmusic@protonmail.com with your cell/email and we'll send you a link so you can download sheet music.

The first live performance was at the South Hadley Town Hall in January 2015, where the group performed "Jugoslavia" and the Bach Brandenburg Concerto No. 3.  (Click here for a video of that concert.  Skip to 25:00 for the Brandenburg part of the concert.)

The orchestra is comprised of students of Adam Sweet's Classical Group class, and area colleagues.  The class is open to anyone with 2 or more years of playing experience on either bowed-string instruments (violins, violas, cellos) or mandolin-family instruments.  The class studies Classical-era (1700s) and Romantic-era (1800s) music with composers such as J.S. Bach, W.A. Mozart, F. Schubert and more.  Learn more about the group classes offered here
