Riversong String Ensemble

March 12, 2017 - 3:00pm - 4:00pm

The Riversong String Ensemble is a group of light-hearted and talented musicians who originally formed in 2012 as part of the Pittsburgh Mandolin Society.  They will take you on a musical journey that will show you how the instruments of the mandolin family were utilized by classical composers, the gondoliers of Venice, the ceilidh bands of Ireland, the romantics of Latin America,  the inhabitants of America’s Appalachian Mountains and, of course, the musicians who played in the heyday of the traditional mandolin orchestra.  Please visit their website at

After the performance, you’re encouraged to come up and learn how to play a mandolin yourself!
*Note, children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by a parent.
