Hi, I'm Peter Auricchio. I hope you enjoyed Eric Ewazen's Prelude and Fugue for Trumpet Choir. I'm a musician from the New York area, and I've gotten to experience joys of making

[00:03:00] music with other people almost every day for the last 30 years. This past year has been a challenge for everyone in our world, and after 15 months of quarantine, I personally was so desperate to play in a group again that I created one myself. As much fun as this project was, though, there is no substitute for playing with other musicians in front of a live audience. So please go out and get vaccinated so that my colleagues and I can return to work and get back to enriching your lives with our music. As always, thank you for listening.
