So with just over two weeks to go til the open, we are still receiving regular updates to an ever-increasing errata sheet for the Planets. I know this is a very common gripe amongst bands-people and no bloody wonder! In this particular case we are playing an arrangement which has not only been knocking around a long time but has also been fully recorded on CD... you'd think when it's chosen for the biggest contest of the year they'd make sure that either: A) All mistakes are already rectified or B) An errata is sent out with the piece. Why should it be up to the bands to waste rehearsal time trying to figure out whats wrong with it? At least with the Planets, we all know how it goes, so most mistakes are obvious... but with many new pieces we don't know the composers/arrangers intentions. I seem to remember having a very similar problem with Jazz for the areas. I don't expect publishers to print it right every time. Does a set of printed parts get played through to spot any mistakes before being sent out though? :? Sorry to BOC, but it beats work. Mind you, so does sticking parts of your anatomy in a blender... at least it's over quicker.
