In recognition of what would’ve been opening day for Major League Baseball today, here’s a simple duet to play at home with a family member or with me playing one of the parts.

Duet for Memorial Day

God Bless AmericaFor the past several years I’ve had the privilege of playing Taps in echo with a colleague as part of a Memorial Day service at a local cemetery.  It’s a helpful reminder to me of what this day of remembrance is really all about.  And I’m always aware of how the playing of Taps, in spite of its simplicity, is deeply meaningful to many people, especially those who have served in the military or who have loved ones who have.

We also usually play a fitting, two trumpet rendition of God Bless America.  Here are links to the simple arrangement in two different keys:

God Bless America in F
