It is with great sadness that we mourn the passing of former MTSB director Chris Smith. Chris was a friend, teacher, mentor, and inspiration to many in our band family and in our community.
Chris was band director from 1991-1999, and returned to the helm for the 2002-2003 seasons. During his tenure, the band increased from 70 members to a high of 186, and the music program received its first ever OMEA Superior rating. Beloved by the students and staff alike, Smith brought an era of fun, excitement, and innovation to the band shows.
Chris will be remembered as a devoted parent, demanding teacher, and dedicated friend. We offer our deepest sympathies to his family.
