    I was reading this thread
    concerning the lack of original brass band music and composers, and also heard about the whit friday march competition, which appeared to be a success, and indeed, its a great march!

    But would people be interested in this?

    Id have a bash at it, but Im not that good!

    This would be good the the Arrangers out there currently bogged down with guff.....

    they could compeat against each other to come up with new works for brass band.....

    Lets BAN reworked suites based on obscure folk tunes from day one though eh?! ;) that'll throw them !

    Let's also ban anything that emulates music from other arena's like Swing aka (swinalongabrass) or basically copies other forms of music more or less plagiarism stylee. such as 'muzak like african funk' and the ilk.

    Well I wouldnt be running it... but I think limiting it as much as you say is not a good idea. Sorry!

    Anyway, hasnt almost every piece of music been influenced by another somewhere down the line?

    Limiting the choices will also limit the creativity in my humble opinion

    Seems like nobody is interested though, a pity :dunno
