Can anything involved with the trumpet be more fun than doing an ensemble with your kids? I am thrilled to be doing a trumpet trio (Carnival Variations) with my two sons tonight at the Lake Harriet Bandshell. The last time we did a trio like this was probably ten years ago. I don't know who is more excited - me or my step-father. He's been talking about it ever since the last time we did it. Unfortunately, my mother passed away a year ago. I know she would have really enjoyed it too. I think this must be about as good as it gets!!
