In Memory of Lisa Spiers

In 2018, Rob Spiers added this: "​Just thought I'd share this Joy. Had a band composition commissioned in memory of my wife Lisa who lost her courageous battle with OM in 2014. As a band director, this was an amazing and moving experience to premier the piece with my band. It is now published and available for high school or college bands to play. If you have kids in bands or have connections with the band community, please share. Great awareness for OM as well as a wonderful tribute to one of our own who we lost. God Bless!!" 

The song Glad Adoration can be heard here on youtube: ​​
