Today I am deeply saddened to hear of Eddie Green's untimely passing. My perception of wind band changed forever after the first time I heard Mr. Green's Lake Highlands HS Wind Ensemble. When I was a music student at Del Mar College I had the pleasure of working back stage at the Buccaneer Music Festival and his band's impeccable clarity, resonance and energy was mind-blowing. Many years later, while working on my masters degree at UH, I had the great opportunity to take conducting and score study from him and his kindness, positivity, knowledge and humor made an indelible mark on my music education.
I join countless members of the band community for paying homage to this great man who positively affected so many!
Rest in Peace!
