Billy Hightower

Recommended Posts

One of the finest players who ever breathed into a baritone passed a couple of days ago. A legendary soloist, Billy was also a consummate teacher and mentor to countless buglers in corps like St. Catherine's Queensmen, Sunrisers, Wynn Center, Scarlet Lancers, and the Smithtown Freelancers (where one of his students was the young Wayne Downey).

He was also, simultaneously, an innovative visual designer. In the truest sense of the word, Bill Hightower was peerless.
