I first want to thank everyone who has been so kind and generous in the cause to help out my great friend Karen Antonio-Muenzinger. The concert on Friday is going to be a great success and I know that Karen is going to be so happy from all the love and generosity. I just got back from a chat with Leigh McKinney, my custom horn maker and the man behind the great Eclipse Trumpets. I was shocked by his amazing generosity to Karen, especially given the fact that he has never met her! He's decided to really help this cause by putting one of his amazing creations, the Eclipse Vortex, on ebay. Every dollar raised on this great horn is going directly to Karen. With an opening bid so low this is your chance to get an AMAZING HORN (by far the most centered horn I've ever played) at an amazing price, and help out a fellow trumpeter who's fighting hard for her life. For anyone who's interested in seeing pictures of the vortex... there's some at Stay tuned as I'll post the ebay ad as soon as Leigh completes it. Thank you all again, and please bid often for this great cause. Here's the ebay link: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3747309561 THANK YOU LEIGH! www.eclipsetrumpets.com PS: The concert for Karen is tomorrow night and if you can help in any way with a donation she'd appreciate it. Thanks again to everyone!
