With sadness, we are sorry to announce the death of past MMS President, Bernard Goldberg. Bernie, as he was known to his friends and colleagues, passed away peacefully, aged 94, on November 15, 2017 in Ohio. He was most noted as a devoted disciple of Marcel Moyse and former Principal Flute of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra. Bernie was one of the founders of the NFA, its first president, and a lifetime achievement award recipient. His teacher was Georges Barrere, supplemented by a lifetime of study with Marcel Moyse from high school (by letter) to the 30 years of summer classes in the US and Europe. He will be sorely missed. No memorial service is planned yet.
