Veritas Musica is sad to share the news that one of our family, Lowell Greer, has passed away. Beyond the fact that Lowell was a supreme musician (composer/natural horn god/master teacher), he was a mentor to many of us and a huge loving figure for all that knew him. We all share our condolences with his family. The world has lost a giant of a musician and one of the kindest, gentlest, and warmest people ever.

After premiering my new band work, Entropy, with the SCIBA Honor Band last month, I am excited to announce that this work is finally available to the public. All edits and tweaks are done. This is an energetic grade 2 1/2 or 3 work for band. There are lots of fun percussion effects. Some aleatoric moments are balanced with hyper-organized sections of melodic motives that are easy to master all used to portray the title's concept. If anyone is interested in trying this piece out, it is available at www.veritasmusicpublishing.com.

"I think every horn player wonders ‘am I good enough’. I was on the audition circuit pretty big and heavy for about a two year span, but I never advanced anywhere. So during that time I remember listening to a lot of the other people and thought, “Wow, am I ever going to make it?” That’s natural to…
