Historical Note

Loren D. Geiger (January 23, 1946 February 19, 2009) was a music teacher, band director, and historian. Born in Buffalo, New York, Geigers earliest music studies were with his mother, Edith Swedenborg Geiger, a pianist, organist, composer, and educator. He received a Bachelor of Music (1968) and a Master of Music (1970), both from the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York. During his career as a tubist, Geiger performed with the Eastman Wind Ensemble under Frederick Fennell, as well as the Philharmonia Orchestra, the Niagra Falls Philharmonic, the Minnewaska Orchestra, the Amherst Symphony, the Orchard Park Symphony, the Clarence Summer Orchestra, the Twentieth Century Band, the Brass Men, and various circus bands. Geiger also published a semi-annual band newsletter, the Boombah Herald, to help promote the history of band music around the world. He also worked as an arranger and composer, publishing some of his arrangements in his Boombah Herald. Loren Geiger died in Cheektowaga, New York in 2009.
