    Very true. In our 'contest oriented' bubble, it's so easy to forget the biggest section of them all - the '5th' section of bands who choose not to compete but are doing all the parks/garden...

    Resurgam. Although, to be fair, I think it was written as a contest piece first, then adopted by the SA. Probably a few more knocking around. The SA 150 thing worries me, as we've just had St Magnus...

    Even us ;)

    Don't want any more pastiche pieces. At least Revelation and Spiriti are honest and sincere pieces of music. Don't get me wrong, I don't mind Torchbearer, but let's try and move...

    I tend to frequent the 4BR facebook group a little more often. As it's unmoderated, there are some pretty horrible things said, but I simply block anyone not being pleasant. They can't see what I've...

    No, it's definitely in treble. One or two top C#'s and a D. Mars is the most exposed, but relatively easy to play, Jupiter has a bit of double-tonguing arpeggios to deal with. The last page of Uranus...

    Of course. First rule of band contests, it's only a duff result when you lose :-?

    Mind you, I bet knitting contests, bake-offs, banjo competitions, dog shows, etc. etc. etc. are the same.

    Rather reminds me of when Desford had two bands in the Championship section. They had to share the same set of jackets, so the aim was to get an early draw to avoid playing in someone else's cold...

    I get to stand at the front and wave my arms around like a demented windmill. If I had an instrument I would be dangerous.

    Please, please, please, anything but Gilbert Vinter. I like the pieces (most of them) but not to rehearse for a contest. We'd spend most of the time correcting the mistakes.
