Saratoga Cemetery seeks trumpet players

SCHUYLERVILLE — The Gerald B.H. Solomon Saratoga National Cemetery is seeking trumpet players to help support the cemetery’s 20th anniversary celebration at 11 a.m. on July 13.

The event will include playing echo taps across the cemetery’s 90-acre property in remembrance of the 20,000-plus men and women interred there.

Echo taps will begin at the USS Saratoga’s ships bel at the entrance to the cemetery and continue playing across the cemetery at different locations as it makes its way back to the starting point.
