The Montana Mandolin Society is resurrecting an American Tradition, and a Montana Tradition, of Mandolin Orchestras. In 1902, the citizens of Bozeman Montana had formed a 28 member Bozeman Mandolin and Guitar Club. This club was made up of local businessmen, students, and musicians. They performed in Bozeman?s Opera House and at Montana State College. In February of 1902, the Bozeman Mandolin Club hosted mandolin virtuoso, Samuel Siegel who played with them on stage in the Opera House. After the end of the mandolin era, Montana lost their mandolin orchestra until 1999 when the new Montana Mandolin Society was formed. The founders of the newer Montana Mandolin Society have a threefold vision in their efforts; education, community service, and sharing exemplary mandolin music from the era with their audiences. Montana Mandolin Society concerts combine a variety of unique music including baroque, folk, classical, contemporary, and original compositions by Dennis White, the Society?s director. A special effort is made to include period music from the early 1900?s.
