    Still, the best place I've ever found to play my brass horns (ability to play them all, but not present capability due to health and dental issues) was in a church sanctuary, during services or otherwise.

    Am now practicing with church choir to sing during Christmas cantata Christmas eve ... not a solo.

    Merry Christmas everyone !

    Don't be afraid to try something different. The Ark was built by an amateur and the Titanic was built by a group of experienced engineers.

    That small horn for a short player crack could also apply to a pocket trumpet

    Welcome to the era of the Department of Defense introduced electronic bugle now used by many military veteran's and civic organizations in lieu of a real on-duty uniformed military personnel bugler as had been promised by DOD to provide the funeral honors to all active military and veterans. While it was recorded by Sergeant Major English (now retired) a former Army bugler at Arlington National Cemetery, disregarding the quality of input such output of the electronic bugle is only via an 8 ohm speaker.

    If it comes down to such, I've instructed my family to play my own CD recording of TAPS but sounded via professional audio engineers. I presently have both the commitment of a live bugler and a piper, but their presence will depend on many factors some of which they may have no control over. It could have been this year, but Thank God and the surgeon it will be a while yet. I'm in no hurry!
