To the Editor:

Saturday, April 27, was a sunny day for many musicians playing along the dock of Old Town Alexandria waterfront, but this day was a little different. The youngest of all was a trumpet player, Geoff Gallan, playing in a style of jazz from "Summer Time" to “Here Come the Bride” when a young bride in her gown passed by with her bridesmaids' dresses in purple.

Twelve-year-old Geoff will play a free concert on Sunday, May 19, 4 p.m. at the Heritage Presbyterian Church 8503 Fort Hunt Road, Alexandria.
