Jazz instruments with fire alarm

At Sunday's Evensong, our visiting priest had just sung the dismissal and the jazz combo started their last piece, when a curious child pulled the fire alarm. The alarm rang on a clear pitch, three short, piercing notes, over and over.

Within about ten seconds, the combo picked up the key in which the fire alarm rang, and continued to improvise with it till our attentive and quick-minded Minister of Music got the thing turned off.

The jazz studies program lives in our church building this year, after the music complex was flooded beyond repair last summer. I hope they never leave.
