    Whit Friday - March on stand

    Does the march on the stand have to be an official march or could a band play an unpublished arrangement?

    Each contest sets it's own rules and these do vary as regards number of players etc but all require the contest march to be a published march. You can play what you want on the road though.

    It depends on the rules of the individual contest. The Delph Contest Rules do state that the March must be published :

    "...Bands may play any published march they wish...."

    Should be published marches, the rules on that have been around for a long time at most contests.

    Does a march on Score Exchange count as being published?

    A man once accused of being able to write a melody...

    Didn't the TMP band play a march that had been specially written for them by Darrol Barry when they competed a few years back? I'm fairly sure that wasn't published beforehand.

    And aren't there bands that have played their own unpublished 'signature' marches? Besses or Dyke maybe?

    University of Warwick played a newly-written march by the university's director of music, Colin Touchin ("The Heavenly Bears March" I think was the title) a few years back - I'm sure that was unpublished, and we had no trouble anywhere in Saddleworth.
