The NBA joins the band world in mourning the loss of composer and conductor, Robert W. Smith. He was a giant in the band profession, and one of the kindest people you could ever meet. As one of the most prolific composers of the last 40 years, his legacy will most certainly live on through his wonderful music.
We express our heartfelt condolences to the Smith family, their friends and loved ones, as well as the Troy University family.
Rest in peace, Mr. Smith.
