    Ditto what Dave said. They looked really clean and shinny when Lee did it.

    One way I have to see if the valves need cleaning, particularly when they stick, is to pull the valve out and look in...

    Horn sounds fantastic, Hiram. I could hear it well over the band. Were you close to the mic? I have heard you on the other Shires, the Q41 I believe. In this setting it is hard to distinguish...

    I enjoyed the new Concerto, Hiram. Well done, bravo! Your rendition of Student Prince was eloquent. You looked mighty darn spiffy in front of the band, well done. You do the Marine Band proud.

    Nice looking horn, and a nice looking bunch of horns, too! Hope you find good places to play it. I, too, like Pat, am curious as to how the valves work.

    I just listened to the piece on YouTube. Looks like the highest note is a high Bb concert (C treble clef). I heard that note twice in the piece. Also heard a few high Ab concerts (Bb treble clef)....

    Indeed!! That IS a very nice flock of euphoniums. Now comes the silly question. Is "flock" correct? There can be a gaggle of geese, a flock of birds, a murder of crows, a pod of whales and a...

    Sean,

    Any notion where ITEC 2023 is going to be? I thought I had heard Arizona, but I can't seem to find anything on it after a brief look around the Internet.

    Thanks.
