    Prelude - 49th Parallel

    I'm looking for a 2nd horn part to "Prelude - 49th Parallel" by Vaughan Williams (arr. Roy Douglas), which I'm conducting in a concert on Saturday. We only discovered last night that the part is missing, and writing out a new part from the condensed score isn't practical, unfortunately. Any...

    L&SC Areas 2014

    With two weeks to go, I'm really looking forward to this year's area contest at Stevenage. As we've learned in the past, the weekend won't receive the same attention from 4barsrest as the other regions do (though thankfully British Bandsman and a couple of others seem to do a bit better at...

    Cheltenham 2013: post-contest photos

    The band I conduct has been contacted by the photographers who were taking the official photographs at Cheltenham last month, asking whether they should bother printing/sending proofs for us to order from - they seem to be concerned about low take-up.

    Weighting of Regional Sections

    Sorry for the clunky thread title. Just been musing on the entries of bands being announced for those regions which have declared so far. Here on tMP, we have heard rumblings from the West (oo-err - or oo-aar?) that the moving of more bands up from section 4 to section 3 is a...

    Midsummer Eve - Drake Rimmer

    Whilst searching for something else entirely, I came across this title. Just wondering if anyone knows the piece at all, as there's no PDF preview on Just Music's website. Sounds like it could either be a little gem/golden oldie, or forgotten for a good reason... Is anyone able to shed more...

    A smashing piece by Eric Ball, which I've played several times at Christmas concerts over the past few years. Does anyone know if it's currently in print? I can't find it on the SP&S website, and a wider search brings up only CD downloads etc. Alternatively, if there's anyone who has a...

    The test-pieces have been announced. Presumably everyone knows where they're going... but when? I can't find a mention of the actual dates for the 2010 regional contests - does anyone know when these are announced? I'm assuming they've not been given already, as I've not turned anything up...
