Germán A. Águilar Memorial Wednesday, July 2, 4 p.m., at Delta College

San Joaquin Delta College will hold a memorial for our beloved colleague Germán Andrés Águilar on Wednesday, July 2, 4 p.m. at Atherton Auditorium.

Germán passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, June 7th in Florence, Italy doing what he loved, performing with the Cal State Long Beach Conservatory Choir. He was on a three week tour performing in many of the iconic performance venues throughout Europe.

Germán was indeed one of the finest choral directors and teachers Delta College has had the privilege to work with. He touched the lives of students, faculty, staff and the community in a most profound way. You could never forget his joyful smile, his artistry and love for his work. As Germán directed his choral performances, you could see he was dancing with the angelic hymns of heaven.

Remember the weekly challenge (and all time FAVORITE), when we had you pick a physical area to de-clutter in your lives? You told me about your cars, closets, and even refrigerators! And you loved the freeing feeling of getting rid of the junk that was draining you of your energy and your time. I think this was close to one of our most popular challenges. Well, this is a de-cluttering of the spirit. An emotional kind of clean-up.
