Hal Leonard, the world's largest publisher of music performance and instructional materials, honored one of its longest-standing distribution partners at the 2019 NAMM Show. Hal Leonard Chairman and CEO Keith Mardak presented Centerstream President Ron Middlebrook with a plaque commemorating 35 years of working together. Centerstream is known for their unique publications for a variety of instruments, especially instructional titles for guitar and folk instruments, but also children's picture books about music, reference titles about instrument manufacturers, and other historical songbooks.
Keith Mardak stated, "Ron has been one of our longest-standing business partners and I'm honored to have been the one to sign the deal 35 years ago. We're proud to distribute Centerstream publications and happy that they're continuing their mission of keeping musicians of all genres well-informed."
Ron Middlebrook added, "The hard-working folks at Hal Leonard have always been good to work with, making me feel like part of the family. It's hard to believe it's been 35 years! How can that be when Keith and I are still 39?"
There are nearly three hundred books in the Centerstream catalog. Retailers interested in learning more about their titles can contact the Hal Leonard E-Z Order Line at 1-800-554-0626.
