POST YOUR LOW BRASS SECTION PHOTO HERE

Postby bloke » Sun Mar 21, 2010 1:39 am

We scan and post cool old pics of low brass sections from the '40's through the '90's (etc.), but if we don't document our own low brass sections, there won't be any more new "cool old pic's" to post decades from now. Snap your brass section (as you see, ours wasn't taken by Olan Mills, and none of us are in any danger of being recruited by Vanity Fair), label the folks - along with the orchestra - and post it in this thread for posterio...I mean posterity. :oops:

student/professional/amateur...It doesn't matter. Upload it. Most everyone has at least a concert or two left before the end of the season...

:arrow: Bookmark this thread, so you can find it easily when you're ready with your picture.

From Left to Right: Gary Hsueh, Ed Goodson, David Richoux, Lisa Nellis, Dan Blick, Matt Bjork (and taking a break off camera - Maiko Harada from Kyoto.)

We have a few more members in the section, but they were not there for that set.

(Note the precision dancing ;-))

I like Joe's idea. I don't have one from orchestra, yet. Here is one from the 2010 Seattle Tuba-Euphonium Conference. From left to right: Chris Olka Eugene Dowling and Mark Wiseman (me).

Best view of the back row that I have. You can see Chuck well, but only my bald head and slide. Dwight's head is visible but his horn is down. All you can see of Jim is the slide.
Georgia Philharmonic Orchestra low brass:
Principal trombone - Dwight Klappich
Second trombone - Jim West
Bass trombone(me) - Al Stark
Tuba - Charlton(Chuck) Templeton

HA! I was in that group in 1987! 20 years apart! We were the top unit in the Army Post Band System (like 36 bands back then). So SGT Antonio Bortone (euph) and SP4 Wade Rackley headed down to participate in the 1987 TUSABTEC. It was a great event! I do not know if a group shot was taken of us that year. If anyone has a copy PLEASE post it here or contact me privately so I can purchase a copy from you!

We did. You know, it is truly amazing the amount of change that occurs between your school band photos and your mug shots. :lol:
