In an effort to honor Memorial Day in a socially-distanced way, please consider participating in this National experience.

At 3:00pm on Memorial Day, trumpet players and instrumentalists of all types are invited to step outside their homes and perform Taps for their neighborhood. More details and a link to the music can be found below. If you participate, Ms. Kluga would love to see a photo of you or hear your video. She plans to play Taps from her driveway. Her sister, who is a trumpet player in the Air Force, will be playing Taps from where she is stationed in Illinois.

FYI: Trumpet players – if the music is too high for you Taps can be played using any valve combination for all notes (like a lip slur). Try starting on low D (1+3) and using that fingering for all the notes.
