Joan Cavally presents Bootsie with Robert Cavally' personal flutes and piccolos. This gift was in appreciation for Bootsie's loyalty and dedication in completing the series of books based on Robert Cavally's teaching techniques and for securing the Hal Leonard Corporation for both the books and the entire Robert Cavally Music Library. These flutes were hand made by the world famous William S. Haynes of Boston and originally presented to Robert Cavally for his work in flute design for the Wm. S. Haynes Flute Company.
