College and C'Ville Celebrate Musician/Sculptor Bohumir Kryl  
 

Bohumir Kryl’s Horn is Still Blowing

Former U.S. Air Force Band principal trumpeter Curt Christensen rehearses in the College’s Salter Hall Saturday for his part in the Bohumir Kryl Project, the musical event honoring the legacy of the 19th century musical superstar whose earlier career included sculpting at Crawfordsville’s General Lew Wallace Study.

Organized by local insurance agent, musician, and antique phonograph collector Tim McCormick, the event included programs on antique recordings and about the life of cornetist and band leader Bohumir Kryl, and concluded with a rousing concert of 19th century band scores played by musicians from across the country.
