Welcome to....

Mandolins, Balalaikas, Ukuleles and other lesser known music of British Columbia's Lower Mainland

Hosted by The Lower Mainland Mandolin Society

Last updated June 15, 2022

News flash! Members of our group will be performing Saturday, June 18, 2022 as guests of the Vancouver Swiss Choir, at All Saints Anglican Church, 7405 Royal Oak, Burnaby at 2:00 pm.

We have a large ukulele section and have recently been graced with a mando-cello player - and we are now cautiously practicing at Dunwood Place in New Westminster. We gave a concert for the residents there on December 11. A few of us also entertained the residents of Royal Ascot in Vancouver December 8.

Our president elect is Barbara LaDouceur (Barbie).

Dunwood practice





 Due to the pandemic, most concerts were cancelled until further notice. To entertain you in the meantime, here is a link to a video of leader Catherine Sands and friends playing "My Bonnie" with new words written by Catherine. As the words may not be completely audible, they are on our Facebook page.

Welcome new visitors! Check out reports of our recent activities on Melodious Mandolins page and our Photo Album.

Mandolin lessons available. E-mail us to arrange.

Time to dust off that old mandolin sitting in the closet! We need more mandolin players, ukulele players and also guitar players who enjoy entertaining seniors on a volunteer basis. Call us at 604-202-4191 for an audition.


About the Lower Mainland Mandolin Society

Registered in 1996, our aim is two-fold:

1) to ensure the continuance of the art of mandolin playing

2) to bring music to the community, particularly those confined to care facilities

Our orchestra, the Melodious Mandolins, would love to perform for you.

The Lower Mainland Mandolin Society supports other musical groups. Most of us are members of the Classical Mandolin Society of America.
