With ANZAC Day commemoration ceremonies cancelled around New Zealand, our school received an email from a woman with this great suggestion:
“I thought it would be really cool if every trumpet/cornet player in NZ played The Last Post at the same time outside their houses as the sun is just beginning to rise at 6.25am on ANZAC DAy. This includes all secondary school trumpet/cornet students that are able to play it – I thought for music students out there it may be nice to focus on something else for a while. This could be a very powerful statement to all the veterans that even in these exceptional times we will still remember them.”
So if you play the trumpet or cornet, why not join in The Last Post at 6.25am on ANZAC Day. Maybe text warn your neighbours first!
