“VICTORY OVER JAPAN” 70th ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION
WE NEED YOU TO PLAY TRUMPET
The First Brass of Sarasota is putting a volunteer group of 70 trumpet players together to participate in the 70th Anniversary of “Victory Over Japan” Day on Sunday, August 16th at 6:00 p.m. at the Sarasota National Cemetery. There will be a rehearsal the same day at Patriot Plaza at SNC prior to the service.
The 70 trumpets will play TAPS during the “Laying of the Wreath”. Some of the players will also play “The Star Spangled Banner” and “God Bless America”. Gary will play Amazing Grace on the bagpipes with the trumpets in the background.
Please pass this along to anyone you know that plays the trumpet (even if it is not their primary instrument). Everyone is needed and welcome!
