  • We're doing a Throwback Thursday here - to last Saturday's American Brass Quintet performance. Two brass celebrities were among the concert goers, and the ABQ graciously acknowledged them from the stage, fondly remembering that renowned trumpet player Allan Dean, now in the audience, played with the ABQ back in the 1960s. Dean, who later played with the New York Brass Quintet and the St. Louis Brass, also played in early music groups including Calliope, and will soon retire from teaching at Yale. ⠀
⠀
The second celebrity, Ron Barron (in the pic), Rojak already recognized in the entrance hall. “This man” he explained, “was the principal trombone player at the Boston Symphony Orchestra,” Rojak said. Then, that Barron also taught at New England Conservatory and and Boston University, he added in true Rojak fashion, perhaps an equally crucial detail: “He’s also a wine connoisseur.” Brass royalty in Great Barrington! @americanbrassquintet⠀
