Erik Semmel's an unusually decent fellow.
(Literally a pillar of the community.)
If you've got brass,
he wants to hear it.
Erik's a busy guy!
He finds time to coach these young musicians:
Since 1995 along with his trusty sidekick TJ, he's hosted a radio show, you've probably heard them:
Somehow he makes time to pay his civic dues serving as an
official town waterboarder as well!
<- Not that waterboarding.
This water boarding ->
Erik's on the town
Now, as if in addition to the above and raising his own kids he needs a little something extra to while away the time;
Erik's gotten the idea to break a Guinness World Record!
The Brass Blast
The Southington Brass Blast is a Guinness World Record attempt for the largest trumpet ensemble and a benefit for organizations that support students and musicians. At least 1,200 trumpeters are needed to break the record. We will be performing The National Anthem and a selection that meets the Guinness criteria for this record breaking attempt. Trumpet players who haven't picked up their horn in a while, especially parents of current trumpet students are encouraged to join us.
