    I'm trying to organise a rehearsal for our band to have a look at Gregsons Connotations but I haven't got the music yet and I can't find out anyway how many percussionists I need for it.

    Is there anyone out there that knows how many perc the piece requires?

    Looking at the programme notes on the score it says:

    2 Percussionists are essential in this work.

    The instruments required are:
    Percussion I: Snare Drum, Triangle, Bongo Drums, 3 Temple Blocks, 2 Wood Blocks, Vibraphone, Glockenspiel,
    Suspended and Clash Cymbals.

    Percussion II: 3 or 4 Timpani, Loose or Suspended Cymbal

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks Roger that's brilliant. Looks like the perc have a proper work out hey? Better than Rienzi! Seven perc and they have next to nothing to do.

    Thanks again
