Santa Cruz, Calif. — The Mandolin Symposium celebrates 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, June 22-26, 2015.

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 year's faculty includes Roland White (Bluegrass), Don Stiernberg (Swing and Jazz Master), Rich DelGrosso (Blues), Drew Emmitt (Jamgrass), Caterina Lichtenberg (Classical), Tim Connell (Irish Trad/Brazilian Choro), Sharon Gilchrist (Mandolin Fundamentals) and Mike Mullins (Artist in Residence).

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.
