    So this past weekend I have the privilege of being able to attend Phil Smith's retirement concert in New York City. At the end of the concert it was just the NY Phil brass playing, then literally 50 trumpet players joined them on stage (all VERY talented trumpet players such as Chris Martin, and about 8 Marine band members). Their finale was The Great Gate of Kiev and it just blew my mind. What an ending! It reminds me of The Pines of Rome or Russian Christmas Music. I was wondering if there were many other endings as epic as these?

    Also, did anyone else happen to make it?

    It seems like it was a wonderful event! I wish I could have been there too!
