Sometimes this blog is too serious too often. Let's remedy that with some music videos.
First, from this professional 4th trumpet to all of you, this is what it sounds like at that end of the section.
Second, we trumpet players are not known for our subtlety. Which explains why there is no Trumpet Christmas like the Tuba Christmas. Yes, even a 4th trumpet wants to scream up there with Maynard et. al. Split personality? Not me. (Or me.)
Third, ever wonder what these joyous Christmas melodies would sound like in a minor key? (No, me neither.) But here's the US Army Band playing "Minor Variations." Have fun! It's the season!
