MUSEUM SEEKS BIG BAND ERA VOLUNTEER

CHERISHING OUR VALLEY          2013

In early September, The Museum's Acquisitions Committee will have the very special opportunity to examine, document and add to The Museum's permanent collection, memorabilia related to the life and career of the great Swing Era jazz trumpeter Ralph Muzzillo Sr.

We are seeking a volunteer to assist The Museum during the visit of Mr. Muzzillo's son to the Valley in September.  The volunteer should have a knowledge of Ralph Muzzillo's musicial background (such as his work with Tommy Dorsey and Benny Goodman) and be prepared to advise The Museum on the potential exhibit of Mr. Muzzillo's work etc.
Please call:  Dr. Jerry Fecht        (818) 347-9665   if you are interested.
