“Tiger” was written in memory of Rowland Nielson, a northern California band director, and one of the 3 founding directors of the Northern California Band Association. If you ever met Rowland, you got a smile, a hand shake or a hug. Every young woman he greeted as “Sweetheart” and all the young men were “Tiger.” I first really met Rowland in 1993, although I knew of him before that having been involved in the NCBA since my high school days.

Here is an original composition done for Santa Cruz HS and Ms. Christy Latham. I decided to name the piece after this influential figure in my “band life”, a man who meant so much to me and so many others around him. “Tiger” is for you Rowland. RIP.
