    This was my experience, in hypotheses, my music was in Key of C (for Bb trumpet) and the vocalist requested we play in Key of G. What happened?

    The answer was that more than half the trumpet section laid down their horns. There were just three of us that were sharp (pun) enough to make the transposition to three sharps in the Key signature. Now the pianist (C instruments) are playing an low F # while the Bb trumpets play a low G#. It was my observation that it was male singers that mostly asked for such.
