Burt, White Remember UMaine Grad in BDN Article

Jack Burt, trumpet professor and leader of the University of Maine Jazz Ensemble, Brass Ensemble and Trumpet Ensemble; and Christopher White, director of the UMaine Symphonic Band, Pride of Maine Black Bear Marching Band and Screamin’ Black Bear Pep Band, remembered former student Ashley Drew in a Bangor Daily News article. Drew, who underwent a double lung transplant last year and battled with cystic fibrosis her whole life, passed away at the age of 26. She earned a bachelor’s degree in music education from UMaine in 2009 and played several instruments in a variety of ensembles. Burt and White remembered her as “amazing” and “remarkable.”
