The South Hadley Mandolin Orchestra is a non-profit organization founded in 2012 in South Hadley, Massachusetts by Adam Sweet and his students to perform free concerts for anyone around the Pioneer Valley of western Massachusetts.  

The first live performance was at the South Hadley Town Hall in January 2015 in a combined concert with members of L'Esperance Mandolin Orchestra of Providence, RI.  Click here for a video of that concert.  

The orchestra is comprised of students of the Sweet Music Studio's Advanced Mandolin Group class, which meets Mondays from 7-9pm at the studio, and area colleagues.  The class is open to anyone with 5 or more years of playing experience on either bowed-string instruments (violins, violas, cellos) or mandolin-family instruments.  The class studies Classical-era (1700s) and Romantic-era (1800s) music with composers such as J.S. Bach, W.A. Mozart, F. Schubert and more.  Learn more about the group classes offered by Sweet Music Studio here
