“On April 29, 2006, the Providence Mandolin Orchestra appeared in the Arts in the Village concert series for the first time. The concert was the best-attended and most well received event in the five-year history of the Arts in the Village series.

“The house was sold out, with standing room only, and the inspired performance of the PMO musicians earned three standing ovations. The bond between the performers and the audience members reached a level of intimacy and aesthetic appreciation that is rarely experienced and will long be remembered by all who were present.
“The PMO was entirely professional in all aspects. The coordination and release of PR materials, the printing of the program, and the house management on the night of the concert all benefited from the cooperation and professionalism of the PMO members.
“This event reached the highest level of expectations, and Arts in the Village will be eager to engage the PMO for future concerts.”
—- Shawn Kendrick, Project Coordinator
