Just Who Are You Guys Anyway?
Jon and Robbin Rose started the website www.MyMusicFolders.com in 2002 with the help of their good friend and webmaster Tim, as a way to help fund the Missoula Community Chorus (which they were crazy enough to start in 2001, check out: www.MissoulaChorus.org). As selling music folders blossomed into a full time endeavor, they had the opportunity to work with a high-end manufacturer and designer to develop choir robes which they sell on the sister website www.MyChoirRobes.com.
Jon and Robbin have been working musicians all of their adult lives. They were always musicians, and sometimes they have been “working” musicians. Jon was in a punk band (well, maybe “ska” – he has a trombone and he’s not afraid to use it!) that traveled the Northwest U.S. in the mid-80’s. Robbin sang light opera and musicals in summer theaters for several seasons. Later endeavors included Jon’s 18 year stint singing in a Madrigal group, drinking port wine while wearing tights and singing catches. Robbin spent that time working for churches, singing jazz standards on the weekends, and getting a graduate degree in Music Thanatology (prescriptive music for people at the end of life).
At home Jon and Robbin have 3 pianos, 3 trombones, 2 guitars, an accordion, a 31-string harp, 2 musical daughters, and a dog who can pitch-match! There may even be a YouTube video of Zuzu, the singing Pomeranian…
There are a few other notable characters who help get the folders out the door. Sara and Michael are our handy typesetting experts for the music folder embossing. Deb and Janet handle the warehouse and office, making sure your products get out the door in a timely and well-packaged manner. They’re definitely a ray of sunshine you will enjoy speaking to when you phone in an order, and friendly faces we enjoy seeing every day.
