Stanton showed me the power of music

By letting a few high school students come to a rehearsal for the Pomona Concert Band and then by allowing us to stay and perform with them for their summer concerts Stanton expanded our capacity and capabilities in more than just music but also life. The man was a composer-arranger, conductor and was the founding Director of the Pomona Concert Band. He was Professor Emeritus of Mt. San Antonio College; holding Bachelors and Masters of Music degrees from the University of Southern California. He was also a former Mayor of the City of Pomona, and an executive member of the Los Angeles County Music and Performing Arts Commission. He was known to all as “Maestro.”
