Music Monday -- William Vidunas

3 Generation Pedigree from 
This is an article I found about my father.  He was a Tech Sergeant for US Air Force at the time, and played tuba in the orchestra.  I've already written about his own father, the Soldier Musician in the US Army.  Dad never knew that his dad played so many instruments, yet he himself plays the Bass Violin and the Tuba.

The article reads:
The membership of the Rapides Symphony Orchestra is a cross section of professions drawn from musicians as far away as Beaumont, Tex.  T.Sgt. Bill Vidunas, stationed at England Air Force Base, discusses a selection during a rehearsal with Miss Florence Kushner of Lake Charles (Louisiana) and State Police Troop E Lt. Bill Taylor of Bunkie.  Miss Kushner is the aunt of Symphony Conductor William Kushner, also of Lake Charles.
