A Tribute to BCM Trustee Gary Johnston
Our hearts are broken at Behringer-Crawford Museum as we mourn the sudden death of colleague, teacher, mentor, friend and member of our museum family, Gary Johnston.
A retired Associate Professor of Music at Northern Kentucky University (36-year term), Gary introduced countless students to the sounds of musical excellence by some of the greatest composers of all time. His innate musicality from being a talented trombonist, composer and orchestra director and his passion and enthusiasm for teaching had a profound and lasting impact on his students. He brought out the very best in every musician who performed under his direction.
