    I am sooo desperate for help! I'm trying to get into the music education program at the U of T for baritone and I'm a decent player but I just don't know that much music specifically for brass. Do you guys know any pieces of the following that might be appropriate and available at an RCM store?? Any help would be really appreciated.

    Do you think they'd consider me an oddball if I played a transcription of the Mozart Horn Concerto in Eb??

    If you log on to Steven Mead's website and follow the link to the RNCM page, it includes a list of repertoire which may give you some ideas:

    Not sure what standard these need to be, but if they need to be grade 8-ish, try
    1. Horovitz euph concerto movt. 1 & 2 (works well on bari)
    2. Arban studies - no. 8 or higher
    3. Sooo much to choose from! Try Sparke's Rhapsody for Euphonium (also bari grade 8.) or take a look at some of the British online stores - I'm sure most of them could ship to you. is v good, otherwise try some of the banner ads from this site!
    Good luck!

    Are we not forgetting the "Concertino for Baritone" by our own Mr Thorne?
