    R.I.P. Earle Louder

    Just read this over on TubeNet here:

    R.I.P. Earle

    It is with much sadness that we share the news that Dr. Earle L. Louder passed away today. The Ohio State Fair Band and Alumni Association offer our sincere condolences to his wife Louise, and their entire family.

    The 15 year member of the staff served as the Band's Assistant Director and Low Brass Specialist. He was beloved by members, alums and, of course, his colleagues on the staff. He was an incredible teacher and director, wonderful euphonium player, kind soul, someone who made a positive impact on everyone who crossed his path....and, we loved when he was our concert announcer. We are better for having had Dr. Louder in our lives!

    Dr. Louder received his undergraduate degree from Michigan State University and his Doctorate Degree from Florida State University. For twelve seasons he was the featured euphonium soloist, principal euphonium, and Head of the Brass Department of the US Navy Band in Washington, D.C. Dr. Louder was Resident Artist, Professor of Euphonium, Trombone and Tuba, and Associate Director of Bands at Morehead State University in Kentucky for 28 years. In retirement, he performed with numerous ensembles including Keith Brion's New Sousa Band and for 26 years performed with The Cleveland Orchestra Blossom Festival Band as featured soloist and principal euphonium. Between 1992 and 2003, Dr. Louder conducted the Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp concert band and choral ensembles on six Blue Lake Exchange Program European Concert Tours.

    Thank you Dr. Louder for being part of AOSFB and positively touching the lives of thousands of Ohio's young musicians.

    Earle was a good friend and a true musician. It was a pleasure to sit next to him during Symphonia performances. He was a team player who was always in good spirits. Here is an old recording from 1980, which was one of the first changes I had to hear Earle. He is playing the White "Lyric Suite" with band (a version done by the composer). It is from the 2nd National T.U.B.A. Symposium in Denton, Texas, and Earle is performing with the U.S. Air Force Band of the West.

    Two very interesting links. I played in the FSU bands in 1970 & 71, but was a physics major. I wish I had known that such a distinguished euphoniumist had passed through there!
