“NATCHEZ — When composer William Grant Still died in 1978 he left one bit of business unfinished. Next week Still’s daughter, Judith Anne, will pick up the baton and take the first step to carrying out her father’s dream. 'One of his last wishes was to do something for the state of Mississippi and the children,' Judith Anne Still said. 'He wanted to put music in the schools, and we are establishing a foundation to do so.'
