Dr. Dave Perkel was the lead trombonist of the Navy Commodores Big Band for 15 years, principal trombone of the Annapolis Symphony and former member of the Richmond Symphony and Air Force Ceremonial Brass. On this episode of Skills and Bones we discuss the importance of being a versatile musician, especially in the 21st century. Music is a melting pot of styles and one can find all genres on one program. At a symphony orchestra concert there might be Mahler and Gershwin on the same program. To playing in the pit of a musical theatre  where the trombone book will be symphonic to rock and jazz, all in the same production.
