Violinist John Mailander, CoSA Instrument Music graduate class of 2009, was highlighted in the August 14 issue of the San Diego Union Tribune Night + Day magazine. Mailander played in the August three-day bluegrass marathon in Vista, CA. The article describes Mailander as one of "the event's most accomplished young performers."

After CoSA, Mailander attended the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA.  While there, he teamed up with fellow student Molly Tuttle from Palo Alto, CA.  The two have had nearly 2 million YouTube views for their instrumental and vocal work.

Says the Night + Day article written by George Varga, "Mailander has worked with such noted bluegrass-and-beyond stars as Darol Anger and Tony Trischka. His debut solo album, Walking Distance, is due out Sept. 1...Now embarked on a West Coast tour, Mailander and Tuttle recently released their self-titled debut EP. It's a five-song collection that showcases their talents with warmth and precision."
