    We had a cellist sitting in for a few rehearsals of the community band this fall. He was self-taught, and I guess he was just in over his head. I don't know of a single school around here that has...

    This is my 5th or 6th rodeo with facial skin cancer removal, same doc every time. He's a plastic surgeon, and I can't find a single scar from the carving that he has done. Obviously there will be...

    It's official -- I have a skin cancer on my upper lip. I have an appointment to have it removed with my usual face-cutter (a plastic surgeon) the day after Community Band's Christmas concert. The...

    Looks a little like my 86I, except mine has an upright, non-detachable bell. Love that finish.

    I use the carpeted living room floor, with something to cover the carpet in the immediate worksite vicinity. Soft landing area in case anything falls.

    This thread reminds me of a joke that has been on this forum a time or three:

    Q: What is the difference between a profession euphonium player and a large supreme pizza?

    The episode actually first aired on Dec. 21, 1990. Dec. 24, 1962 is the "date" when the story supposedly took place.

    A fellow Southern Gospel composer/arranger, both of us Finale users, were discussing this one day, and he said that sometimes he feels more like a graphic designer. Truth.

    . . . or I could play my Conn 86I. It's a front-valve horn, and the bell points to my left.

    With my bad right ear, it's a tradeoff. Either I can't hear them, or they can't hear me. Which is more important?

    Our director was amenable; I've notified the section members, and we'll do the new seating when the new season starts. I love it when a plan comes together.

    I just now realized that I am not doing a good job of fulfilling responsibility (B). The section in the community band sits to my right, but I am pretty much deaf in my right ear. The French horns...

    The compensating 3-valve baritones are actually quite flat rather than sharp on the 1-3 and 1-2-3 combinations, a result of not being able to make the compensating tubing short enough. The notes are...

    There is also a separate baritone part (TC) for the Holst Suite in Eb. I can remember it from the 1960s, but somehow it seems to have disappeared between then and now. It has been shared in this...

    I played with the Brass Band of Huntsville for 6-ish years, appearing as a walk-on with my euph, and eventually winding up playing bari (I bought my own horn). The experience prompted a musical...
