Acoustic Disc is working with the Mandolin Symposium to help raise funds for the Mandolin Symposium Scholarship Fund.

The Scholarship program at the Mandolin Symposium is designed to assist students with financial aid. Symposium organizers believe this educational experience should be available to a wide range of students and are seeking financial contributions that will help those that cannot afford all the costs of attending.

With that in mind, Acoustic Disc is offering their complete catalog of CDs (over 65) for any donation of $1000 or greater. For a donation of $1500 we will include a signed set of the DVDs by David (Grateful Dawg DVD and CD, Doc Watson & David Grisman in Concert DVD, David Grisman Quartet "Classic Dawg" DVD) as well as the Symposium Note Cards by Tracy.

We appreciate this wonderful offer by Acoustic Disc and hope that you take advantage of this to help support the Scholarship Program for this year. We have already awarded almost $8000 in Scholarships so your help in reaching that goal is appreciated.

We have also decided to make available a Collector's Edition of the complete Acoustic Disc catalog for any donations of $2000 or greater. This collection will include all autographed CDs by David Grisman as well any other artists that attend the symposium and have recorded for Acoustic Disc.

For information on obtaining one of these special packages, email Stephen Ruffo for more information.

Donations of any amount are welcome and can be made online at the Mandolin Symposium web site.
