Hello there! Now I would like to start with a disclaimer: this isn't exactly a trumpet specific question, so please spare me my soul. However, it is a musical question and I trust and enjoy this community enough to ask it here.That being said, here goes: I saw Broadways Lion King: The Musical today, and oh my gosh what a wonderful experience. Me being the trumpet/music freak I am (combined with the fact that we were two rows from the front) took a stroll up to the pit. (For venue details, it was the Milwaukee theater. Quite a large, and deep, pit if I do say so myself. Now I was disappointed in the lack of trumpet presence however I didn't walk away feeling totally crestfallen. **Backstory time (let me assure you it is very relevant and will help you understand my problem much better)** This year, my high school finished putting on an entirely new music/performing arts wing, full with an 850 seat auditorium, state of the art stage, and wonderful pit. The only problem being that it is about 12 ish feet deep (quite the telltale sign that a music expert didn't have much say in the design process of the house, but anywho)... ***END OF BACKSTORY*** So keeping that dilemma in mind, we fast forward back to present day. I walk up to the pit today and what do I have staring me in the face, none other than a conductors podium that is the perfect height, size, and everything for what our school needs. If my conductor was to sit at a stool or even on a conductor block, there is no way she would be seen by the cast, something that you don't want to have happen. So I was overjoyed when I saw that a stand/podium thing like this existed. I searched around a bit on the internet and couldn't yield much of a result which I have determined to be mainly because I don't know the proper term for what I'm searching for. Since I lack the proper terminology I will give it my best effort to describe it. Its about an 6/8 foot tall stand probably 3 feet wide. All black, couldn't get close enough to see the material it was made of. I wanted to get a picture however the theater has a strictly enforced no photography rule. This stand was large enough for the conductor to stand at with a more than adequately sized table/stand for music and misc. other director goodies and also was able to fit a stool off to the side where the conductor could sit during time of non-playing so his head wasn't constantly in the way. I am very interested in finding either who makes them, where I can find them, what the real names of these are, or at least someone who knows what I'm talking about. Anyone with any information that's willing to share would be greatly appreciated!
