    Numbers of Bands in Sections.Qualifying problems

    Changing band numbers or moving boundaries won't change the fact that a 3rd section standard band is a 3rd section standard band. What would happen is a redefinition on an area by areas basis of what 3rd section standard is. Which defeats the point surely as that is even less of a level...

You know, I can't remember the last time I needed to buy a spare for my Stomvi or Selmer instruments so if they went down the pan, I wouldn't be getting all upset in...

    tMp - simply a knocking shop these days - discuss!

    scaba Autumn Contest 2010

    So the alternative is: Your band are the last to respond, the contest is oversubscribed and a lottery is used to decide who gets the place. This could be the first band to respond. You think thats fairer?

    scaba Autumn Contest 2010

    Or perhaps the correct version would be "Traditional" or "Original" Grading System. The Nationals added a section and there just aren't enough bands in many local associations to split between 5 sections.

    Elgars Nimrod. The Greatest Brass band piece ever written?

    Like MRSH, I too love the Bernstein tempo and plan on including a metronome mark in my will for whichever band gets to play it when the time comes! I also agree about the transition from the previosu movement - when we perform this with the Sussex Symphony, our Conductor generally starts with...
