    Brighton & Hove City Brass are looking to recruit a Soprano Cornet for the London Regionals and potentially, beyond.

    Conductors Showcase

    Here's info from Steve: Yes I recorded Bone Idyll with Sun Life Stanshawe Band around 1980 ish. Think it was on an LP called Conductors Showcase. Derek Bourgeois wrote it for me as part of a Granada Band of the Year Programme that he wrote or arranged in its entirety. It was an adaptation of...

    What’s your favourite instrument and why?

    Currently at around 16 trumpet/cornet related instruments......because I am single, this number could well increase! ;) No specific favourite so listing by type with the reasons: Soprano - My Schilke is the best sop I have ever played. Bb Trumpet - I have a fab original Selmer Paris which is my...

    Who Has The most Trumpet/Cornet Mouthpieces?

    I am a lightweight by comparison - less than 10. However, I do have 16 cornet/trumpet related instruments to make up for that! :D

    I get it occasionally still - just now, moving to the second page of a thread, the formatting was once again there.

    "Band Bashing"

    I am temporarily closing this thread to new posts. When conversations are happening from the same IP address, it suggests that some of the accounts may be the same person with multiple identities. I will happily reopen this upon receipt of proof that this is not the case here.

    BBE Conference Gregson's Observations

    Absolutely agree Andrew - I recall a very long time ago I wrote a piece for Brass Band World on this very topic including a reference to how much easier it was to get into Bosnia than it was to get onto a contest stage. I was accused by someone involved in the Registry at the time of taking...

    Conductors Course review

    Like many other brass band conductors, I never had formal training on things such as baton technique, dealing with complex polyrythms etc, in fact, all the things you would learn on a formal college course for conductors.

    2019 Area test piece discussion thread

    So, if it's the same guy, his arrangements would be out of copyright in 2002, Holst out of copyright in 2004. That only leaves the other copyright in the physical printed edition.
