Plucked String Foundation, Inc., is proud to announce its support of a new commission by Mike Marshall for solo mandolin and mandolin orchestra or string orchestra.

Mike just performed the piece with a student orchestra in Raleigh, North Carolina this past weekend and is available for performances with your orchestra.

The work is in three movements (Medium - Slow - Fast) and about 20 minutes in length. Mandola and mandocello parts are available for either their regular clefs or transposed to g-clefs.

The concerto will be recorded in 2008 and we will inform Mandolin Cafe readers when it is available.

If interested in Mike appearing with your orchestra, contact his manager Maria Camillo.

This is an example of what non-profit Plucked String Foundation, Inc. does to enhance the mandolin world. Our goals include new mandolin works, teaching and student uplifting, introducing mandolin into school curricula. These are programs we have achieved successfully to the extent of our funds.

We gladly accept contributions. All donations receive a verification letter which also can be used for Federal income tax deductions (though we suggest you check with your accountant on this point). Every cent except for required government fees goes toward our work. No salaries are paid and all services, supplies are donated.

If you would like to donate, write:
Plucked String Foundation, Inc.
Box 2770
Kensington, MD 20891

We appreciate anything you may give.

Norman Levine,
Plucked String Foundation, Inc.
