Tom, Mandola

1. What year did you join SDMO?

2. Why? I wanted to improve my sight reading skills, get the orchestra experience (I never played in an orchestra), and have a chance to play my pre-war instruments – Gibson F4 and Washburn mandola. Also, I retired in 2013 and had more time.

3. Why did you stay? I continue to learn and it’s fun. And there’s free cookies! 🙂
