Join the Orchestra

If you've thought about joining the BMO - or even if you haven't, but you're reading this - now's the time to check us out.  You're welcome to come to one of our rehearsals on Wednesday evenings, 7:30-9:30, at St. Ursula Catholic Church, 8801 Harford Road, in Parkville.  We meet in the Spiritual Center, which is below the church, accessible from the parking lot in the back of the church.  Bring your mando (or mandola, mandocello, guitar or bass) and you can sit in with one of our members and see how it goes.  We do not bite.

We are always looking for players to join the BMO.  If what you see here sparks your interest, please check us out.  If you play any of our instruments - mandolin, mandola, mandocello, mandobass or classical guitar - please click on "How to join the BMO" on the left.  We also have instruments to loan.  We'd love to hear from you!
