Oak Parker, music director of The Symphony of Oak Park & River Forest and Chicago Symphony Orchestra's principal trombonist Jay Friedman arranged to complete the CSO trombone section's collection of rare German trombones. Friedman contacted Dr. Earl Groner, a conductor from Scarsdale, New York to loan the Chicago Symphony his 1935 Kruspe bass trombone, originally made for the Berlin Philharmonic. This instrument was presented to Maestro Riccardo Muti, Jay Friedman and bass trombonist Charles Vernon on the stage of Carnegie Hall on the orchestra's recent New York tour.
