Someone from Casper, Wyoming, US posted a whisper, which reads "Whenever I hear people say classical music is boring I just want to remind them that Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture called for a cannon to be fired for a total of 16 times"
I play the French horn and trumpet and this is so true. Band people don't even complain because at least your instruments LOOK DIFFERENT! Everybody thinks that the violin and the viola are the same. All of the orchestra instruments look so similar!
