Hey guys, I did a little search but couldnt find anything conclusive, but then again its a specific problem I have! First of all the band Im conducting... We are a pretty low level band, but we have some amazing Juniors (wish we could fast forward 5 years! ), 2 brothers on trombone/baritone and brother/sister on tenor horn/cornet, leave me quite excited We have some really good players, got a Grade 8 Euph player, when I play, Im also Grade 8 (I tend to mix between Bb and Eb Cornet, but I dont get much time to practice!) , we have a few players of Grade 5 standard, a cornet or three, Solo Horn, Id say the rest of the band would be about Grade 3-4 standard (though Im possibly being harsh), they would obviously be much better if i could get them into practice! , the band has fantastic potential, its just going to be a case of a couple of years hard work Anyway, we have decided that we want to have 16 marches for the road, we currently have 10 but we are going to cut 2... What we have currently... The Villager Kenilworth Slaidburn Sword & Shield True & Trusty (going to ditch this as its not popular with the band!) The New Recruit (as above!) The Rambler The First Parade Loyal & True There is another one but I cant remember what it is :S (ill edit this) Some of the marches that me and a few of the guys have thought of, Im wondering what they are like? The Standard of St George I play this with the band I play with, and I love the sop part, its a definite, so its not up for discussion! The Standard I dont know much about this, I know the band played it years ago Royal Duke As Above National Emblem I love this march! I dont think its too hard either The Young Recruit Not too bad a march at all, the juniors have learned it too i think There is another quite famous one but i cant for the life of me remember it, marchbook is in the car though, work sucks! :clap: Ill get back to you! I was listening to the ipod, and was listening to the march "Under the Double Eagle" by Wagner I think, I really like it, but for those guys out there who may have played it, whats it like? I know there are high B's at the end for the cornets, but I would tell them to take it down an octave for now We really like the idea of Cross of Honour, and I really like Hyde Park, but its been a while since I heard them so I dont know the overall difficulty, also, who publish all of these marches? Now this is where you guys come in, going by what we currently play may give you an idea of our current level, but we have room for development in the future, I think we could possibly try a few slightly trickier marches, then maybe next year take stock and see where we are, so I dont think we would be fit to play Ravenswood, Viva Birkenshaw, Punchinello, Gladiators Farewell or the thin Red Line just yet! There are quite a lot of marching bands in our area (county of population approx 20-30k and there are maybe 9 brass bands?! Anyway, we would like to have a few "original" marches in the book, everyone plays Kenilworth, Slaidburn, Villager and sword and shield round here, so we would like to have our "own" marches as well, if you guys know what I mean! Also, Im fairly new to the whole conducting thing, I know Wright & Round publish some, just wondering where to get hold of the marches, and they arent too expensive? Sorry for the continued ramble, but hope to hear some good chat!
