    *Previous Band Members of the Month*
    Ernie "Corky" Dunn

    Ernie Dunn, who is affectionately known as “Corky” to the members of our band, started playing the trumpet at age fourteen. He played until his twentieth year, at which time he enlisted in the U.S. Navy where he spent the next four years on active duty. He then took a long vacation from playing the trumpet (twenty-eight years to be exact). After this hiatus, his friend, Al Krentzman, encouraged him to “pick up the horn” and start playing again.

    Upon regaining his performing skills, Corky started playing with the Shriners  Brass Band. At a later time he was introduced to the baritone horn by a conductor who provided him with an instrument and gave him the opportunity to perform with his band. In addition to the trumpet and baritone, Corky also plays the valve trombone.

    Presently, Corky occupies the first trumpet chair with the Stratford Community Concert Band and also performs with the Milford Community Band on baritone horn. He possesses a keen sense of humor which he freely shares with his fellow band members. In addition to his musical interests, he enjoys the company of his five grandchildren and one great-grandchild.
