Now's the chance for some of you to brag on your local community bands. I want to know what non-pro level band you have played in or heard that has the best trumpet section? For me, I would have to put my top three in this order; 1) Brass Band of Columbus - Click to hear this fine band! http://www.brassbandofcolumbus.org/Recordings/Americans/Robinsons.ram http://www.brassbandofcolumbus.org/Recordings/Champions/champions.ra 2) Austin Symphonic Band (I heard them at the 1997 Midwest Clinic and they were wonderful. I have not heard them since then.) 3) Northshore Concert Band - This band has 16 trumpet players and 6 of them make a living as band directors or trumpet players, I was amazed at how well they play. I've heard them several times, and never heard them have anything other than a wonderful performance. I know they are pro, but I have to mention the Dallas Winds Trumpet section! They are really super.
