This is to let you all know that the Mandolin Symposium will no longer be held yearly at UC Santa Cruz.

We'd like to thank our partner Stephen Ruffo, our incredible staff and all of the talented instructors who have helped make this annual event a true celebration of the versatility and beauty of the mandolin. We appreciate all your skills and efforts in helping us create a broad and far-reaching curriculum each year.

To our many students who have attended during the past 12 years — we thank you for passionately consuming everything we could throw at you and still wanting more. Your eagerness to learn and grow is inspiring. You made this event possible.

Hopefully we'll be able to make the Mandolin Symposium experience available to you in the future.
