Mr. Vincent R. DiNino, one of the most iconic directors of the Longhorn Band, has passed away.I remember meeting Mr. DiNino for the first time in LHB when I was a freshman. He'd get up on the podium in the band hall, look around, and get ready to conduct the Eyes of Texas. He would conduct it with such passion, such enthusiasm, and such energy; something you would normally never see in someone in his early 90s! The guy standing next to me in band afterwards would tell me to "never forget this moment, because it's one of the greatest moments you'll ever live when in Longhorn Band." That certainly couldn't have been any truer.
