The Sousaphone Story

When John and Jean Edge-Partington made their annual trek to Honduras in 2013, they visited a vocational school, and learned there was a very talented musician/teacher there named Juan Carlos, but he had no instruments with which to teach.

Over the next 4 years they took down a few each year, many being donated by Rotarians in Duncan BC.

In 2017 a Doctor donated this very valuable sousaphone.   Richard Kasperski took it to Santa Barbara as baggage.  It weighed 60 pounds and was oversize, but the airline allowed it to go without charge.

A very happy Juan Carlos is seen here with Richard.  His sign says “Welcome Richard and Heather More – Ambassadors of Music”.
