It is with great sadness of heart that I announce the passing of a dear friend and a mentor Bill Hassing. Bill was a musician, performer, and dedicated to music education his entire life. He served as band director of Santa Ana High School for over twenty years before retiring. Prior to that, among other professional experiences, Bill was on the brass staff with the Anaheim Velvet Knights drum and bugle corps.
Bill was a generous person with people. He always had time to share his expertise or experiences with others. Bill had helpful advice that many have benefited from. Bill was a founding board member of Impulse Drum and Bugle Corps. He also served, in the corps early years, as a staff coordinator and tour director. Bill helped me, and many others, as a professional mentor, but more importantly, he shared his friendship and love of music and music education with me. Where ever love and music are, Bill will always be there. -Raymond Santos
Bill requested that his celebration of life to be held at Santa Ana High School. He devoted so much of his life to Santa Ana High School, and Santa Ana High School would like to give back to Bill.
