• Jesse Shereff, one of the most prominent and influential members of the Gilbert & Sullivan Society of New York, died suddenly on January 2, 2020 at the age of 79. A Society member since 1966, Jess served as President from 1975 to 1978, was Editor of The Palace Peeper for several years in the 1980s and, most recently, held the title of Celestial Drudge. Read our full tribute to Jess.
• In October 2018, our dear friend Andrea Stryker-Rodda passed away. Andi volunteered to play the piano at hundreds of our meetings since the early 1980s and was similarly generous to other Gilbert and Sullivan groups and gatherings over the years. We will miss her deeply.
