Fred Mills, RIP

Very, very sad news – Fred Mills, outstanding trumpeter passed away yesterday in a car accident.

He joined the UGA music faculty in 1996 after a stellar 24 year career with the Canadian Brass.

The last time I heard him perform, it was with the Bulldog Brass Quintet. He made the trumpet sound like a delicate, fluttering butterfly. He will be missed.

Damn good Dawg.
