about

Original compostions for mandolin orchestra by John Goodin.

THE LOUISVILLE MANDOLIN ORCHESTRA

In 1988, Michael Schroeder organized the Louisville Mandolin Orchestra to offer musicians in the Louisville, Kentucky area an opportunity to participate in an orchestral ensemble of plucked instruments. Comprised of mandolins, mandolas, mandocellos, guitars and bass, the LMO’s instrumentation resembles that of a traditional string orchestra, and is a carry-over from the mandolin orchestra tradition popular during the late 1800s and early 1900s in the United States.
The Louisville Mandolin Orchestra has achieved a wide reputation, appearing on the Lonesome Pine Specials at the Kentucky Center for the Arts as part of “Mando Magnificat” which has been televised to a worldwide audience and added to the permanent collection of The Smithsonian. Besides numerous appearances in the region, the LMO has participated in international festivals in Germany, France and Spain.

JOHN GOODIN, COMPOSER

Born in 1951 and raised in Clarksville, Indiana, John Goodin played guitar in rock bands in high school and discovered the mandolin in the early 1970s. He began writing pieces for mandolin orchestra after the formation of the Louisville Mandolin Orchestra in 1988 and has composed over 25 pieces to date. Several have been published by Trekel Musikverlag in Germany. Goodin has also written hundreds of short tunes and pieces, many are recorded on his own CDs and those of his band Contratopia. Mel Bay Inc. has published four of his books of baroque and early music arranged for mandolin and, in addition, Goodin has self-published several book of his own tunes. Much of this work would not have occurred without the support of the Louisville Mandolin Orchestra.

BOB ELKINS, CONDUCTOR

Bob Elkins is a retired music educator from the public schools of Kentucky and West Virginia, and also served as Music Consultant in the State Departments of Education in both states. He is a church musician and a certified music director in the Barbershop Harmony Society. He has been the music director for several outdoor dramas, including Wilderness Road, Honey in the Rock, Hatfields & McCoys, and Young Abe Lincoln. He is currently the conductor of the Louisville Mandolin Orchestra and is also the author of three novels. He lives in Frankfort, Kentucky with his wife and two cats.
