SOLD OUT: Mandolins! World-class Mandolins! Two of 'em! (waiting list only)

  • Jul 28, 2013 · 2:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

NOTE: We are sold out.

 

Mandolin duets!

Two great mandolinists from very different musical backgrounds form one of the sweetest collaborations in the history of their chosen instrument.

 

 

Mike Marshall is a master of mandolin, guitar, mandocello, and violin who has created adventurous instrumental music for over 35 years. He can be heard on hundreds of recordings in genres ranging from bluegrass to jazz to Brazilian choro, and his concert tours have taken him around the globe.

Caterina Lichtenberg is a world-renowned classical mandolinist and guitarist. Born in Bulgaria and educated in Germany, she has won numerous international music competitions and has more than 10 CDs to her credit. She maintains a regular schedule of tours throughout the United States, Japan, Europe, and South America.

And they are coming to our home in Oakland. Together, Mike and Caterina take you on a journey from the mandolin’s origin in the 1600s, through its golden age in 19th-century Italy, to its later adoption by musicians in America and the British Isles. Their technical ability and musical sensitivity can transform the room into an almost spiritual place.

“These two musicians are among the best mandolinists on the planet.” –Utne Reader

    I got an email that there is room for me. Can I bring 1 friend?

    July 24, 2013

    • Debra G.

      Susan, that email was sent in error. It's a glitch in Meetup. I'm sorry, but there is no room for you or your friend. I've alerted Meetup about the problem. We are oversold--I do hope you'll come another time.

      July 24, 2013

    • Debra G.

      Susan, we have had a few cancellations today. If you would like to join us tomorrow, let me know and we can squeeze you in. Do let me know, tho, so I can put your name on the guest list.

    Thank you all for signing up to join us on Sunday. The concert is completely sold out and we will not be able to bring in anyone off the waiting list. Perhaps next time!

      Sounds good. Our waiting list is currently 10 people. Although you are the only one on the Meetup version of the list, you are #11 and 12 on my list. Please understand that if Meetup says you're in, that doesn't mean you're actually in. I hope you understand and are OK with that. It's the limitations of Meetup.

    I would like to bring my sister who is visiting me from out of town. Can you put her on the wait list?

    July 22, 2013

    • Debra G.

      Sure, but it's not looking good for many to come off the waiting list. Will you still come if we can't also include your sister?

    We have house guests this weekend or we would be there.

    is it a concert or background music for a party?

    June 28, 2013

    • Debra G.

      Elsa, it's a concert. Except for during intermission, everyone will be seated, auditorium-style, in our living room watching the musicians. There will be time to socialize (with the musicians and other guests) during intermission and after the show.
