Learning trombone is a practice in humility for Bishop Robert Finn

He didn’t know that Beethoven proclaimed centuries ago that the trombone was “God’s Instrument” because its sound was the closest to the human voice. “God’s instrument? Really?” asks the 60-year-old trombone student, Bishop Robert Finn. He smiles at this holy connection to the silver Conn trombone now perched on its stand. Or maybe he is musing that his own efforts to make a joyful noise are perhaps less Godly, more worldly.
