For Concert Band
This piece was inspired by and is dedicated to the memory of a student I taught at Campbell High School, who passed away in 2018. Jose Loredo was a tuba player. He was a wonderful student and loved playing in both the concert band as well as the marching band. Jose was always full of enthusiasm and energy. He touched the lives of many people, and I am grateful to be one of them. As one of my students, Jose continuously inspired me to look on the bright side of each day. I hope that this simple piece of music can say what my words cannot express.
