Robert L. Klein, a staunch supporter and long time member of the Naples Music Club, was awarded the prestigious title of Director Emeritus at a special presentation during the May 4, 2008, Scholarship Winners’ Recital. The award, in the form of a proclamation, was presented by Immediate Past President Karen Marcotte, who remarked, “It is my distinct honor and privilege to make this special presentation today to a man of exceptional loyalty to the Naples Music Club who has served important leadership roles in our organization for over 20 years. Many of you know him as the man telling you never to go out into the world without a golf pencil in your pocket; a man who holds a tennis ranking very near the top of the nation in men over 85 playing singles; a man who is here at nearly every Music Club function, asking for funds, collecting baskets, always with a wry smile; a man has sent more hand written solicitation notes and thank you notes for scholarship contributions, than notes on many symphonies; a bass clarinetist who possesses more clarinet quartet music than most music conservatories; a man we are proud to call a friend.”
