Fred Mills


Those outside of UGA’s School of Music and the world of brass ensembles would not know of Fred Mills. That is a shame.

Mr. Mills was a university professor, head of the Bulldog Brass Society, and was a damn fine musician that was internationally recognized for his skill and persistence.

Mr. Mills died after a car crash on Monday night. His School of Music family will miss him dearly as will all the rest of us who had the pleasure of hearing his music.

More information about Fred Mills and any subsequent plans or arrangements may be found at the Athens Banner-Herald.

  1. Thanks for posting about Fred. Too often the pop camp doesn't care about the art camp, and vice versa. As a member of both, it means a lot to see this kind of respect for such a musician!
