Today, the OMO has more than 25 members who play first and second mandolin, mandola, mandocello, and mandobass. Since its launch, the OMO has performed up to a half-dozen concerts a year in the local area, with a repertoire covering everything from Bach to Led Zeppelin. They regularly play folk, swing jazz, Brazilian choro, Tin Pan Alley, and Christmas carols. For more information, please visit OMO's website at: https://www.oregonmandolinorchestra.org/.
