Hats off to the 1st trombonists (from the outside, Darren George, Hugh Semple, Lynn Hewitt, and Nelson Knutson). If you are a trombonist you may remember the terror you felt when there was a high Bb
in a piece. During the concert, the 1st bones
had to play the A-natural or higher 117 times. The tally: A-natural, 50 times; Bb, 51 times; B-natural, 6 times; C, 10 times.
