    Re: My last concert

    Years ago there was an article about auditioning the worlds greatest speakers. Anthony H. Cordesman said something to the effect: It isn't he that got to audition the best that wins, it is he that got to ENJOY the music longest.

    In this respect, my wish is that you enter this new phase of your life with the knowledge that you enjoyed and will continue to enjoy longest. There are non-playing functions in your local band, and I know that people like you have always been a great inspiration to me. Please stay in touch. There are simply so many things that can't replace experience!

    Hi Lou,

    I am really sad to hear that your health issues have caused you to give up the Concert Band. I still look forward to hearing your words of wisdom on the forum, and the good stories.

    All the very best,

    Long ago I was a pilot. One day, for health reasons, I had to stop permanently. But since I still consider myself a member of the family of aviators. I think it is even more true for the family of trumpet players: you are one of the beloved members of our family, and you will remain forever, no matter what happens.

    Re: My last concert

    Everything has been said so eloquently already that I don't know if I could improve on it. You are and always will be a valued resource and a "first-call" for the many questions that I seem to have. I always read your posts with more interest than those of some others here. I look forward to reading many more.

    I wish you all the best. And we are the losers in the music world, not you.
