I want to announce the newest member of the US Military Academy Band's Trumpet Section. HER name is Carla Moebius! She comes to us from Silver Springs, Maryland where she was on the adjunct faculty at University of Maryland. She completed her M.M there, a student of Chris Gekker. She did her undergraduate work, a B.M.E., at Indiana University, studying with Ed Cord.
She played a great audition, Monday, really coming alive in the finals while sitting in with members of the section. We're looking forward to when she can actually join us at West Point!
After twenty three years in the section, I'm happy to be replaced by someone with Carla's potential. I think I'll even leave what is left of my bottle of Al Cass on the stand for her!
If you know her, please pass along your well wishes!
That's all for now!
-Gregory Alley, trumpet section leader, West Point Band
