A well deserved tribute was paid to the late Clint Frohm recently by the Murray Symphony. He was the director of the Symphony until shortly before his untimely death in 2010. But perhaps more important was that he had been a high school music instructor and later was music director for Granite School District.

All three of our sons played under him in the Granite Youth Symphony and in orchestras and bands at Cottonwood High School. Frohm became close friends with them and instilled in them a love of all kinds of music. Even after our sons graduated he would sometimes invite them to play with him in other groups he was leading.

He touched the lives of many students. He was versatile and could play all kinds of music from symphony to jazz. We shall always be indebted to Frohm who in our home was the real "Music Man."
