    Found this interesting…. Bit disturbing



    (AP) ISIS is recruiting trumpet/bugle players for service in their advancing and war efforts. Reports from the area are that the radical group is seeking to recruit trumpeter/buglers to work with the efforts in the advancing war activities. Apparently they are having trouble getting/keeping recruits for this particular job which they consider invaluable to keeping moral up and general troop attitude.

    The ratio of Performance Majors playing oboe (and bassoon) earning a living with their instrument is by far higher than those playing trumpet/cornet.
