Taps - Memorial Day Weekend
Sometimes it's the simple things that create the most emotion. It was always an honor to play taps on my trumpet while in high school for ceremony’s at the American Legion, the Indiana State Police Memorial Services and at funerals for great men and women who served our country. Taps consists of 4 simple notes. No tempo, no time signature and no one note shares any place in time with another. However, I know of no other composition that instantly brings more emotion to the heart as fast as taps.
Remembering those who have fought for our freedom this Memorial Day weekend.
