    Robinson, Gale

    Teacher and former first horn for Universal Studios whose film credits include Electra Glide in Blue and Stripes.  She was also a member of the Los Angeles Horn Club, which released an album of classical music with the rather misleading title Hollywood Horns.  (There has since been a group with that moniker, adding to the confusion.)  It was not Gale's only foray into classical, however.  As a member of the Festival Players of California and the Robinson Ensemble, she did a couple of stints with the South Bay Chamber Music Society.  On 20th December 1970, the Festival Players put on an eclectic program that ranged from early Baroque composer Giovanni Palestrina to 20th century composer Alan Boustead.  A couple of years later, she appeared with the Robinson Ensemble, led presumably by soprano Beverly Robinson, performing works of Johannes Brahms, Richard Donovan, and Franz Schubert.  To pay the bills, she performed as a session musician for an impressive array of artists and groups, including Alpha Band, Benny Carter, Frankie Crocker, Earth, Wind & Fire, The Emotions, Esquivel, Ella Fitzgerald, Neil Hefti, Carmen McRae, Maxine Nightingale, Jack Nitzsche, Dory Previn, Rhythm Heritage, Frank Sinatra, Sunset Bombers, and Deniece Williams.
