Ron, Guitar

1. What year did you join SDMO?
I joined SDMO in the summer of 2018.

2. Why? I had rehearsed with a big band, but found the sheer volume was too much. Andrea told me the Mandolin Orchestra needed guitarists and I joined her one day. Such an expressive, sonorous sound! I’m grateful I did.

3. Why did you stay? Music is good for the soul. Especially when we create it together in person. I often find myself very happy during our rehearsals and concerts to know so many appreciate making music just as much as listening to music!
