Thank you, sir, for your excellent essay. I marched as a UMass "bando" from 1998 to 2001 and played in the concert band that Mr. Parks directed during the spring semesters. I knew he was influential and well-known, but only since his passing have I gotten a better idea of the scale of his influence. My band friends, my brother and I, and seemingly countless others are so incredibly lucky to be able to say that we too were directly impacted by a leader who has been rightfully compared to John Phillip Sousa and William Revelli.
