Milliens piccolo trumpet serial number 1

The trumpet was donated to the BSO Archives by Patrick Lorini in memory of his trumpet teacher Patrick Renzi. Renzi studied trumpet with Roger Voisin at the New England Conservatory in the early 1960s when Voisin was also working with the Milliens company to design their piccolo trumpet.
