Matt Vaughn, Co-Principal Trombone with the Philadelphia Orchestra sits down with Andrew & Lance in a fun and wide-ranging conversation. Matt talks not only about his highly successful career, but about what it is like being a twin, what he listens for in auditions and what it was like to take on the role of Mother Teresa in Air Force Basic Training.

Oh, and he once played a gig at Cedar Point with his pants down. Allegedly.

Chad Winkler, fourth/utility trumpet with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra joins Andrew & Lance in person in front of an audience at Duquesne University.

From an early start as an award-winning pianist, to studies with his father, Chad explains what it took to win the gig of his dreams. Chad explains what it was like to study with his father at West Virginia University and (of course) gets into a lively hockey debate with Andrew. The term “puck the face” may or may not have been used repeatedly. You have been warned.
