The Count of Truro Solo for Trumpet and Piano
The Count of Truro is a solo for Bb Trumpet and Piano from the collection Scenes from the Cape. This collection is dedicated to my brother, Jerry Nelson, who was a musician and puppeteer with the Muppets.
This MRNS Music Digital Download will include the Trumpet and Piano parts, plus a brief description of the solo. The entire collection may also be purchased as a 2 book set (solo and piano books.)

Description: This solo is named for my brother’s most famous Muppet character, Count Von Count, from Sesame Street. This piece is meant to be a processional, so it should be performed in a slow march style. Note the optional notes at the end. An Intermediate and advanced version of this solo is included.
