John Matteson: Baritone Horn
My music career began as a trumpet player that I played until I was a junior in high school. That year I “caught” an elbow in a basketball game that resulted in 4 stitches in my upper lip. That ended my trumpet career. After my lip healed, I ended up playing the baritone horn my senior year in high school. Now 50 years later, I’m trying to redevelop my lip for the baritone horn.
I have a BS degree in Accounting, and for 37 years I worked in the Trust Department for Central Trust Company and M&T Bank. My wife Carol and I have lived in Penfield since 1978, and we have a daughter, a son and 2 granddaughters.
