The true MVPs of Game One

Did you catch game one of the World Series? Did you hear that fantastic arrangement of the Star Spangled Banner by John Williams? Did you know those brass players, in addition to playing with the Boston Pops, play with the VSO? Mark Emery, principal trumpet, John Faieta, principal trombone, Gabe Langfur and Greg Spiridopoulos, trombones, and Takatsugu Hagiwara, principal tuba, had the distinct pleasure of kicking off Game One of the World Series at Fenway Park on Thursday under the baton of John Williams. Vermont Public Radio got wind of this tidbit and interviewed Mark Emery the following morning. Follow this link to read the story or listen to a podcast
