    Those would be members of The United States Army Band (Pershing's Own). Do you have a picture of the conductor? I can probably recognize and name him if I see the face.

    I totally agree with Don's comment on having the rest of the section sitting "downwind" from the principal player. This might mean that the solo/principal euphonium does not play on the end of the...

    Not that I am independently wealthy, which I am not, but to play that piece I would happily purchase the Fennell version and let that be my donation to the band for the year. I have often had to...

    I can help with that, simply sell them all to me for very few dollars. You get rid of your extra horns, you have much more space in your home (in fact, this might allow you to even downsize to a...
