  1. Gustav Holst is one of my very favorite composers. I loved playing his compositions when I was a girl in school. That entire era of symphonic composition is fabulous; it can be compared to modernism in writing.

    I played trombone & baritone horn. I still have a baritone (actually a euphonium); it needs to be fixed; something I plan to do once I have a vehicle again. Once this COVID thing is over (if it’s ever over), I would like to join a community band & play with some other people.

    1. Music is one of my first loves, I was a folk guitarist back in the day. I also studied music at school, among the greats was Holst.

      Hoping this Covid thing is over soon but think humanity needed the kick in the butt too
