For Concert Band
This piece was inspired by and dedicated to the memory of a student I taught at Campbell High School who passed away this past fall. Jose Loredo was a tuba player in the Campbell High School Band in Smyrna, GA. 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 many people's lives, 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.
