Today we have a picture of the Claflin University Brass Band. The picture was taken in Orangeburg, South Carolina in 1899. I have always been partial to the brass section, especially the low tones from the baritones and the trombones. I played the trombone in High School in the marching band and the stage band. I was never very good because I just did not have the part of the brain that controls the beat. I sort of just played along with whoever was near me.
