One of our friends works at a music store repairing musical instruments. He is very musically talented and can play almost every instrument he repairs.
Even though there are many instruments he can play very well, he has his favorites, and the sousaphone happens to be one of them.
He plays in many productions throughout our city every year, but always looks forward to Christmas when he plays at several Christmas gatherings.
The sousaphone is the instrument he usually plays and he always gets lots of comments on it. To me it looks so big and heavy, that I don't know how he stands or even sits very long with that wrapped around him.
It has a beautiful sound though and blends in well with the other brass instruments that are played in his group.
