NEXT CONCERTS

Wonderful evenings entertainment

Thoroughly enjoyed listening to the wonderful music of the Mandolin orchestra. A very talented group of young muscians. Wasn’t sure what to expect as we just saw the poster and thought we would give it a try - so glad we did. We knew more of the music than we realised - would definitely recommend at 20 euros pp for 75 mins.

Excellent

We always see this orchester when in Madeira & they never disappoint. Their young conductive is adding new arrangements. At Christmas they invite guest singers for the second half of the concert & display their innovative interpretations of show songs to opera is amazing. A must see concert.

Very good performance.

My wife and I have been visiting Madeira for the last 10 years. We have always talked about going to see a performance of The Madeira Mandolin Orchestra. This year we went and we are so glad we did.

mandolin orchestra

I have seen the Mandolin Orchestra many times, as I live on Madeira, I often take guests to see them. Always a lovely evening , comfortable venue. Was rather disapointed with the last concert, 10th october. Usual high standard of playing , the programme seemed shorter and there was a singer with the last two pieces. I felt that the singing style did not fit with the whole style of the evening, was inappropriate and not really very good. Is this going to continue in the programme?

I am SO glad I was persuaded to go!

This is the oldest mandolin orchestra in Europe which contrasts with the youngness of many of the instrumentalists. I found the quality and variety of different pieces very pleasing and I was impressed by the professionalism of especially some of the younger musicians. I didn't realize that there are mandolins which are the equivalent of the viola, cello and double base.It was well worth the €20 in the Madeira Congress Centre. Obrigado amigos!

Such Amazing Talent

This was the second New Year’s concert we attended in three years and this one was even better. Such an amazing array of talent from the two young soloists at the start of the concert to the hugely experienced opera singers in the second half. All the orchestra were enjoying playing,were doing so well and deserved the standing ovation as did of course the Artistic Director who in his mid twenties has expertise and talent way beyond his years. A wonderful way to start the New Year.

Great concert at the Casino

We watched a great concert on 7th June. They are mainly young musicians but very professional. Not just Mandolins but guitars and Double basses. They played a great melody of pieces that we could tap along too. Great concert.

Amazing Experience!

If you have the chance to see this wonderful group of young musicians, then don't miss it. What a credit they all are to Madeira. We spent a lovely evening in a half empty theatre listening to them making music and couldn't understand why there weren't more people there. Could it have been anything to do with the fact that on the first two occasions we tried to buy tickets, credit cards were not accepted. We persevered and tried again when we had cash in our pockets. However a lot of people may not and therefore both orchestra and audience miss a wonderful opportunity. What a legacy Eurico Martins left but his son Joao is a worthy successor.

Superb skill and sound

I wholeheartedly support those reviews which love and praise this group of some 25 to 30 musicians of all ages. They entertain for an hour with their well chosen catchy classic marches, waltzes,polkas and a whole variety of pieces. We visit the island annually and attendance is a "must". The venue is comfortable and majestic and they grace it well. Their sound is a revelation. Just make the effort to go and you will not be disappointed.

Wonderful Young Orchestra

Just got back from Madeira where we saw The Madeira Mandolin Orchestra which is mainly made up of young people and they are wonderful. We have actually seen them 6 times now and they get better and better and Very Highly recommend them as a must see if you are visiting Madeira.
