Katie Prior is the 15 year old founder of the Youth Trumpet & Taps Corps that trains, supports, and recognizes high school trumpet players who use their musical gifts to honor military veterans. When Katie heard that many veterans’ funerals have an audio recording of Taps, she decided to recruit her friends to see to it that veterans in her community get the live tribute they deserve. To date, she has recruited 53 trumpet players in eleven states.
