    The East Coast Mandolin Orchestra (ECMO) consists of 75 professional and highly-skilled amateur musicians drawn from more than a dozen U.S. states. A plucked string orchestra, the ECMO includes mandolin family instruments, domra (Russian cousin of the mandolin), guitar (classical and steel-string), and double bass.

    The seasonal repertoire will highlight the mandolin orchestra's wide range of expressive possibilities, referencing diverse classical, folk, and jazz influences. The program of holiday music includes works by Vivaldi, Holst, Prokofiev, (Vince) Guaraldi, and unique setting of carols from around the world.

    Aleksei Aleksandrov, domra

    Antonello Dimatteo, clarinet and zampogna (Italian bagpipes)

    Enigmatica, New England-based mandolin ensembkle under the directio of Marilynn Mair (one of the foremost American classical mandolinists and pedagogues)
