I'm wondering about the legitimacy of an anecdote someone related to me when I was a kid. They claimed they were the only trumpet player ever admitted to this club.Tweet
I was mainly there with a group to play the Trout Quintet, but I remember also playing the Prelude to the 3rd Partita (on viola, of course!) It was a nice place, I think I wore a suit.
No special box to tick for not playing a brass instrument, I believe.
That "kind" of crowd? Is that a subtle tongue-in-cheek re: prejudice toward brass players? Lol.
I played baritone horn for 4 years in high school band! It had a spit valve (of course)!
Gentlemen, please - water keys! Lol.

When I was a kid in the early 1940s my dentist's office was across the street from Carnegie Hall. (Might it have been above the Carnegie Deli?)
