I was sad to hear this earlier. When I moved to Texas it was a learning curve to get the standard that was expected by bands here. Sitting in rehearsals with him conducting the Corpus Christi Wind Symphony helped me understand how to clean and truly reach a level of performance that UIL expected. His stories and wit were something I looked forward to, even if all of us feared he’d ask us to play a passage of sixteenth notes going down the line! (Generally the trombone players were a nice distraction though!)
I learned so much from him, but it’s also so apparent the legacy he left with all he taught and worked with. Grateful to have had a number of years under his baton!
My condolences and prayers to the Taylor family.
