The Toronto Mandolin Orchestra
Founded in 1956, the Toronto Mandolin Orchestra is one of Canada’s oldest musical groups. The orchestra’s illustrious history includes performances in prominent venues across Canada and the Ukraine, as well as commissions of new Canadian compositions and milestone collaborations with world class artists. Though grounded in the Ukrainian-Canadian tradition, the group’s membership (Ukrainian, Russian, Jewish, Italian, Yugoslavian, Macedonian, Hungarian, Dutch, English, Peruvian and more) is as ethnically diverse as its repertoire which spans classical, folk, popular and Canadian music. Concert to be held at The NEWROADS Performing Arts Centre, formerly NEWMARKET Theatre.
