The Auckland Mandolinata Orchestra was formed in 1969 and over the years has developed a style that is particular to the mandolin. The orchestra is comprised of instruments of the mandolin family – the mandolin, mandola and mandocello – with the addition of guitars, contra bass, accordion and flute to enhance the sound and widen the genres of music available to be played.

The love of music has been an essential factor in binding together the members of this orchestra for almost 50 years. Players gather from Orewa to Manurewa to rehearse on a weekly basis.

Representatives from the orchestra have traveled internationally to join others with the same passion, to share music, learn from each other and to perform. The orchestra's broad repertoire ranges from folk and traditional music of Europe, Northern and Eastern European cultures, classical and semi-classical, easy-listening, contemporary American, Latin and South American, as well as some Asian music.

Most of the music is arranged by members of the orchestra, some are commissioned or arranged specially for the orchestra, and some are obtained through music exchange with other orchestras.

Come along for a unique, entertaining afternoon of music! Afternoon tea at the interval (gold coin donation).
