On a night where Malibu High School’s winds and jazz musicians took the stage for their annual spring concert, an era was ending. 

Bill Bixler, teacher of instrumental music, conducted his last concert at the high school on Thursday, May 15. 

“I thought I was going to fall to pieces emotionally,” Bixler said. “But the music does something to you. It rescues you, in a way, emotionally. So I just got inside of the music.”
