Peter, my dear friend and colleague, died in April 2009. He was an important part of the Musiklus team for many years. His work as a meticulous proof-reader saw him devote countless hours to carefully examining every arrangement and version of hundreds of selections. Pete was “always there” for me - always ready on a moment’s notice to offer help setting up, tearing down, lugging equipment, and on and on and on.
Phyllis wears many hats with Musiklus. She assists with proofreading the material in Ron’s web-based anthology and works regularly in the areas of promotion, publicity, and editing. Her new focus area will see her serving as the primary contact person for anthology subscribers. Because of her thoroughness and attention to detail, we know that subscribers will be able to count on prompt and efficient responses to their questions and special requests.
