This mandolin orchestra with a large fanbase presents a very special ensemble concert that showcases the uniquely transparent sound of the mandolin.

The 3-part program this time features a selection of famous pieces for mandolin orchestra and other familiar melodies.

Part 1: Famous pieces for mandolin orchestra

For this part, the orchestra selected a number of original pieces made for the characteristically transparent sound of the mandolin, a musical instrument born in Italy. The instrument itself is also explained in depth, to communicate its appeal even more profoundly. 

Part 2: Mandolin & guitar ensemble

This part features a selection of chamber music and other delicate tunes, performed by a rather small ensemble.

Part 3: Full orchestra performance of familiar tunes from around the world, arranged for mandolin and guitar.

This is the Urawa Guitar Mandolin Club in full swing!


The Urawa Guitar Mandolin Club was founded in July 1979 in what was then called Urawa City, and today counts over 70 members who simply enjoy getting together and making joyful and cheerful music, regardless of experience or age. Appearing in various events including regular concerts in early summer, the members value every encounter with their audiences and the local people wherever they perform.
