    The Aurora Mandolin Orchestra is the largest orchestra of its kind in Northern California. It was organized in 1970 by renowned mandolinist Gino Pellegrini and is now directed by his widow, Josephine. She continues Gino's tradition and musical legacy by offering diverse programs to many organizations in the Bay Area. The Orchestra's unique, romantic sounds take listeners to many lands and provide a treat that fans have enjoyed for decades.

    The Aurora Mandolin Orchestra consists of up to thirty professional and amateur musicians (mandolin, mandola, mandocello, guitar, string bass, accordion, flute and percussion) from various parts of the Bay Area. The uniqueness of this group is its varied repertoire that includes traditional and semi-classical Italian, Spanish, Russian, specialty ethnic and contemporary orchestral compositions. They have given public performances to thousands of music lovers and are especially proud to have played Davies Hall at San Francisco Symphony’s festive opening night in 1984, the Academy of Sciences at Golden Gate Park, Santa Clara University, and the annual San Francisco Mandolin Festival.

    In 2006, the Aurora Mandolin Ensemble (AME), a subset of the orchestra, was formed to perform for venues ranging from the concert hall and outdoor festivals, to restaurants, clubs and private parties. Either group is available for booking festivals and social events.
