    Phil,

    Brass Herald looks great. Congratulations and happy Christmas...

    By the way, who's that old trumpeter that runs the RSAMD now? :)

    Phil,

    I was kidding, of course. John and I are great friends -- I was the International Chair of Brass Studies at the RAM when he was the head of brass. We had marvelous times together and I know that he's doing great things in Glasgow..

    Best wishes to you and your magazine,
    EC

    John Wallace is one of the great gentlemen of the Trumpet world. I had the hono(u)r of meeting him at RAM when I went over there with the Brooklyn College Brass Ensemble, then spent time with him the following summer under the auspices of the Lake Placid program with Ed.
    What a great bunch of guys. And holy cow, were we Brooklynites blown away and intimidated, dare I say, by the class at RAM.

    Hi Ed

    I remember you being at the Royal Academy back in the late 1990s when I was working there with John. Do you still come over?

    Great you are enjoying The Brass Herald - I am very pleased to hear that!

    All best

    Philip
