    With only 8 weeks to go until official announcement of next year's Regional pieces, I thought the yearly fun thread of guessing or posting rumours may have started by now........

    Any starters to kick it off?

    In light of the current trend of repeating test pieces my money is on Cambridge Variations, a well known test piece not used at a major contest since 2016......:p:p:p:p

    But because bands get better year on year it'll be set for the 2nd section this time

    No need to guess, I happen to know which pieces for each section will be selected!

    So a new commission which starts off with a haka led by the percussion section?

    Not Aotearoa then..... ;)
    set for 1st section Regionals in 1995, Bugle A section in 2000 and Swiss 2nd section in 20011
    Lovely piece, haven't heard it for ages, and would happily sit through a whole section on that.

    So, any truth to the rumours of extreme banding for the top section?!

    No, don't remember that at all.

    Do remember this one that proved you were 60% wrong though....!
