    Dear Manny,

    Today (Sunday) I heard a young trumpet player on the radio show
    " From the Top" hosted by Christopher O'Riley. The trumpet player is one of your students, but I didn't get his name.

    The young man said his dream gig would be any job that allowed him to play with you.

    Yes!

    He's presently a second year student of Marie Speziale's at Rice at really enjoying himself. She is apparently a wonderful teacher who is beloved by her students and after a brief conversation we had I can see why. She's caring and knowledgeable and has a terrific reputation as a player from her days with Cinncinati.

    Glad you enjoyed the show.

    Yes. And he was playing an Arban solo (surprise, surprise!), the one in A. Did a nice job, too.
