(Dmytro “Henry” Aleksandrov, Headline USA) A professional trumpet player from New York City made a video tutorial in which he guided users on how to play the trumpet while wearing two masks and be “stylish” at the same time, according to Gateway Pundit.
With the threat of COVID-19 largely in hindsight for many, Jennifer Lloyd, a research associate at the University of British Columbia with doctorate in psychometrics, lamented via Twitter that it was hard to continue wearing a mask when everybody else had stopped.
“Dispel the myth that all who wear masks always feel confident doing so,” she tweeted.
“I confess freely: [it’s] getting harder & harder for me to wear my N95 when few & fewer people are doing the same,” she added. “I increasingly feel self-conscious.”
While studies have cast aspersions on the erstwhile scientific dogma that masks can help prevent COVID transmission, Lloyd suggested that the cloth coverings gave her a general sense of healthfulness.
“I just prefer health to illness,” she wrote. “So I dig deep. Onward.”
Not to be outdone, Brad Siroky, a trumpet-playing professor at the Manhattan School of Music, posted a photo of himself holding a trumpet while wearing two masks in what appeared to be a concert venue.
“If I can do it while playing trumpet at Carnegie Hall, we can all do it at the grocery store,” said Siroky, who has performed with ensembles including the New York Philharmonic, the Orchestra of St. Luke’s, the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, the American Symphony Orchestra, as well as on Broadway.
After it went viral Sirosky appears to have deleted the tweet and limited access to his Twitter account.
But according to the Gateway Pundit, he also responded to a post from the far-left @OccupyWallStNYC account that attempted to shame people into mask-compliance.

Siroky also had posted a tutorial on YouTube on how to play the trumpet with a mask. After Gateway Pundit published its article, he removed his tutorial from the video-sharing platform. However, the video was retrieved and posted on Rumble.
“It is a little cumbersome. I can see why this would not be so popular for young players or older players too,” he said in the video. “But [it’s] the best safest way that I’ve come up with so far.”
He is not alone in his leftist masking lunacy.
Public schools have gone to ridiculous lengths to perpeduate mask hysteria, with some music students required to make holes in their masks to perform while staying in technical compliance with local mandates.

Others when with the more practical—albeit less cost-effective—solution of putting the entire high-school band in individual incubator-like tents.
