Suzuki Strings of Madison and the Madison Cello Ensemble are working towards selling 60 Bucky Books. They are 35$ each and we retain 10$ off of each book sold. Our teachers will have books for you either at group class or in their private studio. Buy or sign up to sell and return with the money collected : check to SSM or cash. Final sale date is 11/15.

We are starting with 60 books – and can always get more to sell. Our goal is to sell all 60 and make 600$ to be used : in our scholarship fund, MyArts space rental and our 30th anniversary concert celebration with artist Rachel Barton Pine! Thank you for helping in this fundraiser.
