contest - yes or no ?
Oh Come On.
We must contest.
Improve standard, something to work for, great day out, etc. etc., the list goes on.
Perhaps we should think of test pieces as another piece of MUSIC and not as a test piece. Perform it for what it is, not just to win.
New Band Music
Thanks to NottinghamFlorist for the great suggestion. :lol:
Does it matter if its the usual white haired, octaganerian, church choir, should raise a laugh (as well as a few heart murmers) if nothing else.
Or what about a new composition, "Blue Rinse Blues".
Surely, the hardest thing for bands to raise these days is money.
So, wouldn't it be fairer to book an appropriate venue in each area and rotate clockwise around the country. All bands would then be able to budget and fund raise appropriately years in advance. :P
