    Help finding music!

    Hi all,
    I would like to enter my 10 yr old daughter, which would be her 1st contest.:D
    Previous post on the subject of 'piece choice' found The Holy City coming out as a fave amongst members. I haven't got a copy and wondered where I could buy one.
    I have looked on the Boosey site with out any luck!
    Any other suggestions on piece would be appreciated, 10yr old with 18mnths experience!
    With the emphasis being on her gaining confidence and enjoying the experience!

    In asnwer to your post. The Holy City is published by Boosey & Hawkes. You can download a copy of the cornet solo and piano copy for a very reasonable price via their music download page at http://www.boosey.com/pages/sheetdownload/ I downloaded a new copy myself last week.

    Please feel free to pm me your email address and I will send you an entry form.
