Smitten (for mandolin orchestra) is an arrangement for mandolin orchestra of a simple waltz that I composed around the year 2000. My contra dance band Contratopia used our arrangement of this tune as the title track of our 3rd recording. This arrangement was created for Bob Knysz and my friends in the Atlanta Mandolin Orchestra in 2005. I was honored to be invited to play along with the AMO during their concert at the 2006 convention of the Classical Mandolin Society of America which included a performance of this piece. Now I would like to share the music with any other mandolin or plucked string orchestras that might be interested. Please feel free to print as many copies of the score and parts as necessary for the use of your group. Also, don't hesitate to experiment with tempos and dynamics. My hope is that you will enjoy playing this music and that you will convey that enjoyment to your audiences.
