Oral History Information
Roberto Weingrill Jr. spoke during his Oral History interview about the early days of his family’s business and the many changes that have occurred over the years. His great-grandfather moved to Brazil in the 1890s to establish his own instrument company. Weril Instruments was established just a few years later in 1909 and worked hard to provide the entire range of instruments needed for the marching band. One of the great stories Roberto told of those early days in business was that they had one tool, the scissors. Things have come a long way since then.
