On Wednesday morning, the 53 members of the Steamboat Springs High School Concert Band watched the tick of the baton in front of them. As Simon Boyar tapped out the beat, the saxophones bleated and the trumpets wailed. Wednesday marked the first time the students had seen the piece, called “Springs.” Boyar, a professional marimba player, wrote it for the concert band.
