    Music to the Contender would make a great arrangement in the right hands

    I always thought if someone could get to grips and arrange some of Pink Floyds material it would be good. Anyone fancy a go?

    Funnily enough, I've been wondering about doing bits from "The Wall", I can't decide whether this is a superb idea or a nightmare :confused:

    Anyone got any thoughts on whether or not it might work?

    See how things start?

    National Express, by Neil Hannon, aka The Divine Comedy, arranged for Trombone Solo (and embarrassed cornets) by Tim Paton, was played by Tim Benson and the tMP band at Pontins last night.

    Ok so I got National Express out of this thread... how about?

    Some Guillimots - particularly Sao Paulo, which is fast becoming my fav track.

    The second movement from Tchaikovsky 5 - Horn Solo

    Barber's adagio for strings for brass

    Coldplay's "Fix you" would make a good Brass arrangement in my humble opinion - would obviously require some improvisation, but it could work

    Rachmaninov's Piano Concerto No.3 for me, although I hate to think what the solo part would be like, and think it would be well beyond the technical capabilities of any band. Can't see it happening unfortunately

    I'm back to the point wher one asks "What's the point of bothering, when the publishers won't even give you the basic courtesy of an acknowledgement, let alone a reply?" :mad:

    Having had the yearly overdose of Santa Claustrophobia, I want a full version of Rootin' Tootin' Santa Claus! What a tune! But where is it from? I've never heard it anywhere other than in this piece.

    . A Rootin’ Tootin’ Santa Claus - Tex Beneke w/ The Miller Orchestra
    Pee Wee King - Rootin' Tootin Santa Claus - Pee Wee King's Country Hoedown (Bloodshot)

    My advice would be, try a different publisher!

    Whilst I realise the name on the cover is often big part of how we judge scores at a glance, getting new music out there is more important now than it ever was.

    Don't give up budding/amateur/experienced/professional composers/arrangers. The brass band world needs you!!
