14Strings! is a Filipino style Rondalla based in Ithaca, New York. The main instruments are 14 stringed plucked instruments like the banduria, the laud (Lute), and the octavina.

14Strings! was originally a student organization at Cornell University, but there is also a community group consisting of non-students and local residents. The two groups regularly practice and perform together. Members include Cornell undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty, and staff as well as Ithaca residents with no Cornell affiliation. Current members come from China, Malaysia, Japan, the USA and (of course) the Philippines.

14Strings! can be seen performing on and off campus throughout the year. See our calendar for upcoming events.

New members are always welcome -- with or without musical experience!
