Announcement:

It is again with great sadness that we announce the passing of a legend in our profession.

Early this Monday morning, Dr. Sidney J. McKay was summoned to Heaven. Sidney has been in declining health for some time now, but never stopped leading us all by his words, his actions and his life.

Sidney is a recipient of the WTSBOA Lifetime Achievement Award for his musical leadership during his longtime tenure at the University of Memphis as well as a member of the Tennessee Bandmasters Hall of Fame.  He also served as the Musical Director of the Memphis Wind Symphony as well as a foundation member of the Choir at Second Baptist Church in Memphis. But mostly, Sidney was family to his loving wife, his son and daughter, his grandchildren and to many of us.

We have all been impacted by this great man, whether directly or by his impact on others in our lives.  

We will sorely miss this GREAT man each and every day.

Once again, BATONS UP ! 
                 RIP Sidney

It is with a sad heart that we announce the passing of long-time music educator and friend to the world of band, Mr. Tom W. Swayzee on August 18th.

Mr. Swayzee influenced untold numbers of young musicians as well as those that taught them over a 50+ year period of teaching.  Tom was loved for his passion of music but more notably for his passion with people.

Mr. Swayzee is a member of the WTSBOA Hall of Fame and will be forever remembered as the GIANT that he is to us in the band profession.
Batons Up !!               RIP Tom

We are asking for prayers for the Milan High School Band.  Last night, one member of the band was killed and another severely injured in a tragic automobile accident.  For those of you who have lost students, you know how tough this will be for the students and directors over the next few weeks and months.  Please lift them up in prayer throughout the year.
