It Must Have Been the Guy Sitting Next To Me
Last night I played trumpet in a concert for the first time in over thirty years. It was something of a rush. The "Communiversity Band" (the name is dumb; if you Google it you'll find that a lot of universities use it, for some reason) is a summer band here at Ohio University that is made up of faculty, students, and folks from the local community, including some high school students. In spite of the eclectic mix of talents, it sounds really quite good. Well, except maybe for the trumpet section, where I think there may have been a few sour notes sounded last night.
