Borklog: One entry

MaxTheOboe aimed and said that Frederick Fennell passed away this morning. :'-( He was one of the primary folks that established concert band music as a legitimate art form, and anyone who plays (or has played) in a band can thank him for the opportunity. I had a chance to play under him with two of Mark Norman's groups back in Northern Virginia, and had a chance to hang out with him during a conductor's conference. Quite a strange, yet cool individual.
