Default When you have a quiet moment,......

...this was sent to me in an email and worth your time to listen, I believe.

----- Forwarded Message -----

The Silence (Taps) is played by 13 year old Melissa Venema with André Rieu and
his orchestra at the 'Vrijthof' in Maastricht.


The conductor of the orchestra is Andre Rieu from Holland . The young
lady, her trumpet and her rendition of TAPS makes your hair stand on
end.

Many of you may never have heard taps played in its entirety, for all
of the men & women that have died for you to have the freedom you have
in America . This is an opportunity you won't want to miss and I
guarantee you'll never forget.

Amazingly beautiful .. Melissa Venema, age 13, is the trumpet soloist.

Here is Taps played in its entirety. The original version of Taps was
called Last Post, and was written by Daniel Butterfield in 1801. It
was rather lengthy and formal, as you will hear in this clip, so in
1862 it was shortened to 24 notes and re-named Taps. Melissa Venema is
playing it on a trumpet whereby the original was played on a bugle.

I can't say I've Ever heard a trumpet sound so good!!! She didn't play it, she made sweet music from it!


What is the purpose of the conductor? Like all the musicians that are there playing are of the highest quality, so why do they need a conductor at the live performances? I get the part about the conductor at rehearsals.

For most concerts their part is small--all their work was completed as you said at rehearsel.

Now--for live performances like broadway plays, musicals, etc... things do not always run the same--someone forgets a line or is sick and a part gets cut--the conductor is critical in keeping the fresh changes going smoothly.

Why have coaches show up at the Super Bowl?

Well you've got to have someone chew your ass off for screwing up.....don't you?
I'm just glad you didn't question the need for cheerleaders. Quite frankly I don't think there is enough of them.
