Dear Friends: our beloved friend, Mark H. Schwartz(Phoenix, AZ, formerly of Boston, MA) has lost his father. The funeral will be in W. Roxbury, MA this Friday, February 7th.

I know many of you have conversed with Mark, here, on TPIN, and at ITG, and not a few of you have benefitted (as have we at Instrumental Change) from Mark's business savvy and advice.

I will post more information as it becomes available. Please share this with everyone you know in the trumpet world. Mark's Dad was a social activist and a righteous man, who actually marched alongside MLK in Selma.....

Deep heart-felt condolences go out to Mark, his wife Darline Schwartz, their children and family.
