FJC bids farewell to a founding father : Harold Brooks

Harold A. Brooks, the Jazz Collective's Productions Director and a founding member, passed away Monday, Oct. 29th. An inspiration to all who knew him, Harold gave generously of his time and money to advance the cause of keeping jazz alive and well in Fredericksburg. Whether he was mentoring young students, planning our public presentations, playing keyboards at our jazz jams, or bringing us new ideas from other regional jazz organizations, Harold kept a positive attitude and helpful demeanor throughout.
