more information here.

Omar was the director of the All-Ohio State Fair Band from 1970-1998. I was a member of that band from 1997-2000. Omar was inspiration to every one of his students, including me. I credit him with teaching me a hell of a lot more than music. Probably in the coming day or so, I'll remember an example of this, but I can't right now.

Yeah. Donald Santa-Emma is great; don't get me wrong. But Omar just had this... touch?... that Santa-Emma doesn't. You got this strong vibe from him that despite the fact there were 250 band members, Omar really and truly cared about every single one of them as a musician, student, and human being.
