Del Mar trumpet player to be honored at upcoming concert

The Coastal Communities Concert Band is holding a particularly special performance on May 20, which will celebrate the work of longtime band member and Del Mar resident Bruce Warnock, 93.

The award-winning band, directed by Dr. Robert Fleming, will perform Warnock’s original “Del March,” written about San Diego’s Hotel Del, Fleming said. Warnock has played trumpet in the band for nearly 25 years, but now suffers from a post-polio condition. The band will also perform a piece called “Dirty Dish Rag,” also written by Warnock.

Warnock said his musical career dates back to the 1920s in Chicago, where he grew up. He said he remembers riding the streetcar when he was 9 to play at the Paul Rader’s Tabernacle Orchestra on the far north side of Chicago. He also tried out for the Major Bowes Amateur Hour in New York at a young age and continued traveling the country for two years, playing in cities from coast to coast. He traveled by bus and made $35 per week.

Warnock taught public school music for 15 years in Illinois and Michigan, and moved to San Diego to become a real estate broker.

The performance will take place at 2 p.m. at the Carlsbad Community Church, at the corner of Jefferson and Pine streets in Carlsbad. The cost is $15 for general admission and $12 for seniors and students. For purchases in advance, contact Kris Sims at (760) 436-6137. Information is available at www.cccband.com.
