The REAL Army Band

Topic: The REAL Army Band

MY COLLEGE ROOMMATE, Laura, a music student majoring in piano, wanted to join the Army Band. The grueling series of interviews included written tests and two piano-playing demonstrations in different parts of the country. Finally, she received notification that she was selected. Thrilled, she signed up for overseas duty and was shipped off to Germany. On her first leave, I asked her how it felt to finally play the piano for a living. "Oh," she said with a shrug, "we can't lug a piano around Germany, so I'm playing the triangle."
