RIP Michael Purvis-Smith

Thursday, January 18, 2018 12:00 PM | Anonymous

The passing of Michael Purvis-Smith is one in which is deeply felt across the wind band community and academia.  Michael was not only a former colleague and board member of the CBA-Ontario, but he was a gifted composer, conductor, and specialist of western classical music and its history.  On behalf of the CBA-ONTARIO , we would like to extend our deepest sympathies to the entire family.

Here is a lovely tribute written about Michael...

Purves-Smith: 'Gentle, beautiful'

He was a Renaissance man transplanted into the 21st century.
