Tears And Trombones


Young Joey has a promising future as a professional musician – and a determined spirit – if he can survive the abuse and chaos of his alcoholic father and his family’s constant moves to new towns. 

From the moment Joey’s mother finds a way to answer his pleas to see the San Francisco Symphony, she becomes a partner in his dream. 

Author Nanci Woody talks about this true story told in her book, Tears and Trombones
