    Burbage are going to Butlins this year for the first time. Not a challenging piece at all for 3rd section in terms of techincal fast playing especially on bass, not sure how others feel.

    As we have a busy christmas schedule, its good practice and preperation for us to get into contesting mode and dosen't take alot of preparation to get up to a reasonable standard, hence why we are going.

    Had a listen to the recording online, and had a look at my part, and my overall impression isn't good. For me, it lacks imagination. From what I've read, it was written for a massed youth band, and I guess it probably works quite well for that purpose, as there's not much in the way of intricate counter-melodies or cross-rhythms, stuff that would get lost with 100 kids on stage.

    However, I'm most interested in why you chose to create a dedicated thread, rather than posting in this thread : ? So go on, how about you share your own opinion?
