    Hey team,

    I just got my first wedding gig (woo hoo!) and I believe they want Trumpet Voluntary. What is the standard version/edition/publisher, etc? I don't have my own copy yet. Do you play it on picc. or Bb or something else?

    Also, I am getting married this summer as well and I am fortunate enough to have the great Martin Hodel (with St. Olaf College and MN Orch) performing at it. What pieces (other than the traditional) do you suggest for a wedding?

    thanks for everything,
