New Commission Celebrates Life and Contributions of Renowned Wind Conductor

Andrew Boss will write a new work dedicated to the life and contributions of Bobby Adams.

A retired professor of Music Education, and former coordinator of Instrumental Music and director of Bands at Stetson University since 1987, Dr. Adams helped build Stetson’s instrumental program within the School of Music to what it is today.  He passed away on Thursday, May 28, at the age of 75.

This new work will feature the full scope of the wind ensemble using a variety of related musical styles, techniques, and colors. Its world premiere is expected sometime in Fall 2019.
