In addition, on Monday, 12/5/11, students who studied with and played under Richard's baton at UCSB led a beautiful memorial, remembering Richard with music and words. My sincere gratitude to the students for producing and the Music Department for hosting this event, with special thanks to Kacey Link for organizing it.
Also, on Monday, 12/12/11, Westmont College hosted a memorial service at Deane Chapel, led by Richard's friend and colleague Dr. Paul Mori. Students honored Richard with heartfelt music and words paying tribute to his effect on their lives and this campus. Deane Chapel was the site of Richard's last solo performance and last conducting experience. Again, I extend my gratitude to Westmont College for its gracious hosting of this service.
Thank you all for your love and support.
