2013 Annual Mandolin Symposium - Santa Cruz, Californa - June 24-28, 2013

Santa Cruz, Calif. — The Mandolin Symposium celebrates its tenth year of bringing together instructors and students from around the globe to study the mandolin and its music at the beautiful campus of the University of Santa Cruz in California June 24-28, 2013.

Led by David Grisman and Mike Marshall the week-long event features daily music appreciation sessions, over 50 elective classes, daily ensemble rehearsal sessions and evening performances.

In addition to Grisman and Marshall, this years faculty includes Adam Steffey (Bluegrass), Don Stiernberg (Jazz), Chris Acquavella and Caterina Lichtenberg (Classical), and Don Julin (Especially for Beginners!), who will be teaching all week.

The teaching staff also includes instructors brought in for part of the week to address specific styles or techniques. Those instructors include: Marla Fibish (Irish), Radim Zenkl (Eastern European & Slide Mandolin), Frank Solivan and Mike Mullins (Bluegrass) and Eric Thompson (Old-Timey). On tour from Brazil, Choro das 3 will be making a special appearance at the Symposium and will conduct choro sessions all week.

Luthier Lynn Dudenbostel returns with his extremely popular repair shop, which is part master-craftsman-shop, part front porch. Lynn generously donates the proceeds from repairs done all week to the Symposium scholarship fund.

This year the Symposium will take place at the Porter campus of the University of California at Santa Cruz.

Registrations is open and on-campus housing still available. Contact Stephen Ruffo at (360) 385-6836 or by email for your application and further information.
