. . .And His Talent and Vision Are Never More Evident Than On His Newest Release, Book of Omens
Playing in a professional orchestra while touring Europe sounds like a good thing. For Rosenboom, who had dreams of playing principal trumpet for a major symphony orchestra, it was anything but. “I went on tour with this orchestra for a month, and realized this was not the career I wanted.
