About the Oregon Mandolin Orchestra and its Mission
The Oregon Mandolin Orchestra was founded by Elizabeth and Brian Oberlin in an effort to revive the beauty and popularity of the traditional mandolin orchestra, which was mainstream in the United States around the turn of the 20th Century. At that time, the mandolin orchestras were highly popular throughout the United States with most cities and high schools having their own.
