    An Unusual Gig

    Hello everyone,

    On Tuesday 21st June 2022, I was engaged to play 'The Last Post' on my Euphonium at Langley Vale Wood which is located on an old First World War training camp. During this event, I had the privilege of meeting HRH Princess Anne who spoke to me prior to the short service commemorating all those men who served during The First World War.

    As most of you will know 'The Last Post' is not usually played on the Euphonium but it got me thinking about the craziest gigs that you may all have done. It would be absolutely amazing to share all our stories of our craziest or unusual gigs on this thread.

    I look forward to reading all of your stories.

    I played The Last Post a few times at my church up on the balcony for their Remembrance Day portion of the service. I used my trombone and played into the stand. I chose to play it on trombone as the euphonium sounded too mellow. Plus I needed a reason to play my trombone for something (haven't done much trombone playing since graduating from university 20 years ago)

    Hello EuphLight,

    It is absolutely amazing how versatile the Euphonium is as an instrument! How did 'The Last Post' sound on the Trombone?
