Missoula, MT (PRWEB) December 20, 2005 –
While the local, state, and government response to Hurricane Katrina garnered a tremendous amount of negative media coverage, the U.S. Coast Guard's quick and heroic rescue efforts were heralded by news organizations across the country. Often noted was the irony that, despite having the most outdated equipment of any branch of the military (out of 41 major naval fleets in the world, it is ranked thirty-ninth), the U.S. Coast Guard was able to rescue or evacuate over 33,000 Katrina survivors.
With that kind of underfunding, is it any wonder that the U.S. Coast Guard Marching Band has been using music folios that were purchased during FDR's first presidential term? Thankfully, the small, lightweight weatherproof music holders have been replaced with those manufactured by MyMusicFolders (http://www.mymusicfolders.com), and the new folios will be placed on active duty during this year's holiday season.
"We are proud to have been able to help the servicemen and women in the U.S. Coast Guard Marching Band," says Robin Roshi Rose, owner of http://www.MyMusicFolders.com . "We not only recreated the marching band folios, but we made a new and improved version!"
The folios are designed to be held using common instrumental lyres, and have an anti-glare, weatherproof PVC window through which the music can be seen. In addition, a simple elastic cord system holds up to fifty standard sized sheets of marching band music, and the folios are significantly lighter in weight than other folios on the market.
MyMusicFolders will retain the right to manufacture and sell these folios as an addition to their successful line of durable, affordable music folders. "This exciting addition will be available on our website beginning in January 2006," says Robin.
