For Oboe and Piano
By Richard Crosby. This is a brief piece written in memory of an oboist and journalism student who was tragically killed in an automobile accident.

Alycia Smith was a very talented young musician whose life was cut short in a terrible automobile accident in 2002. She was an oboist who received awards in KMEA solo and ensemble contests and from the Kentucky Federation of Music Clubs. For 4 years she was a participant in the Stephen Collins Foster music camps here in Richmond, Kentucky, which was her home. Alycia was also a member of the Central Kentucky Youth Orchestra for two years, participated in the Richmond Children's Theatre, and in 1998 was selected for the Kentucky Governor's School for the Arts. She was an undergraduate student at the University of Louisville, and wrote for the school newspaper. Alycia was a prolific poet and essayist, and was still playing oboe in the University Orchestra at the time of her death. Her loss was tragic, and I wished to pay tribute to her by writing this work for her favorite instrument.
