Echo Taps makes
Echo Taps, the Armed Forces Day tribute having more than 870 buglers, trumpeters and other horn players, made the Guinness Book of World Records. On May 21, 2005, the musicians lined up for 41 miles and began playing Taps at Woodlawn National Cemetery in Elmira, N.Y., and ended nearly three hours later at Bath National Cemetery, Bath, N.Y. After the first bugler played the first three notes of Taps, the second bugler began and three notes later, the third bugler began, and so on. Each musician played Taps in full. Participating in Echo Taps was David Carlson, BHS Class of 1975, who is band director at West High School, Corning, N.Y., along with several of his students. Carlson is the son of Archer and Ethel May Carlson, Baldwin City.
