Longtime music director of the Arapahoe Philharmonic Vincent LaGuardia, Jr died March 9 after collapsing during a concert. His wife, Tracy, says it was the second heart attack he’d suffered on the conductor’s podium. But she says it was important to him not to miss a concert and he was doing what he loved.
