    Dr. Walter H. Cameron played cornet with Sousa's second commercial band 1926-31 and the went on to play with Ringling Brothers Circus before they bought into and merged with Barnum & Bailey. He was my public school instructor, HS Band Director and private tutor. Does he count?

    Monday Jan 16 2012. A HS classmate just contacted me forwarding a bit more bio on Dr. Cameron. He served in the 111th Infantry from PA during WWI as a Musician 1st Class.

    I know both Vizzutti and Hardenberger teach at colleges somewhere, as do Reinhold Friedrich and Matthias Hofs. Don't know if you consider the last two on the same level as Wynton and co., but I think they're pretty great :cool:

    Meredith Willlson played flute in Sousa's second band too. Then he did a stint with the NY Phil, prior to his radio show and Music Man fame. Still, primarily he was a pianist. Sousa died in the Lincoln Hotel in Reading PA in 1932, there as guest conductor of the Ringold Band.

    Gary see my follow up on Dr. Cameron.
