310 Trumpets

So we’ll gather 310 trumpet players from all over the world regardless of nationality, gender, age, proficiency level, or styles. All the trumpeters facing the same way, playing together in harmony will be an amazing way to convey our messages to the world. Let’s create a peaceful world where anyone can enjoy music!
