Trombone players Jake Mezera (foreground) and Michael Cox practice their chops on the Northwestern campus. They both graduated from the Bienen School of Music at Northwestern.

Mr. Mezera is an active freelance musician and occasionally subs with the Chicago Symphony, and Mr. Cox is a member of the San Francisco Ballet Orchestra. Both orchestras are currently on pandemic hiatus. (RoundTable photo)
