Warren Torns, Orchestra and Band Director 1988-1991

After Jim Nichols’ retirement, Warren became instrumental music director.  His influence was felt in several high schools in the county.


On Facebook, alumnus Erin Vidali Proudfoot shares, “Warren Torns, 78, passed away this September 2022. He was the director of the Grossmont Royal Blue Regiment (marching band!) from Fall 1988 to Spring 1991 - three wonderful seasons where we advanced in “class rating” every year he directed us.  Mr. Torns made a HUGE impact in the lives of many young musicians and he will be truly missed.”
