I had the privilege of studying music in college with Roy. During that time, we engaged in plenty of shenanigans and had a blast creating music together. He’s arguably one of the finest pianists I’ve ever known and in addition, a fine person. Roy is the kind of guy that would give you the shirt off his back. I remember watching him help younger students with their music theory homework, taking his time to make sure that they understood their work.

in this video, Roy shares his passion for human connection. He correctly states that true connection seems to be fading from our society and that he wishes we could get back to fostering a greater sense of solidarity. Hmmm…I wonder if his passion fits in with the mission of the GGP?

He is now an organ builder and often posts great pictures of his work on his Instagram. Follow him @acousticsmith.
