FINDING A HORN. We have talked about needing horns and that most every marching band is done now until next late summer for marching band camp. If you can make contact with a local band director and borrow one that would be great. Sopranos/Trumpets you need a Bb trumpet, Mellos a marching mellophone in F, Baris a marching baritone in Bb, and Contra/tubas a marching tuba in Bb. Many many bands have these instruments and probably do not use them for a few months. Connect or reconnect with the directors and see if you can borrow one. (They might be an old corps person.) Ebay has been known to have them for sale too. As a last resort please let your section leader know that you cannot find one and we will try to help. But remember, you finding 1 horn is probably easier than us finding multiple.
