    British Open Test Pieces

    Well, as much as I will now make a point of going to the Open this year because I enjoy all three pieces; I am a little worried that in the long term that if this continues it will mean less original music will be commisioned for the Majors. I'm also a little peaved they're using THE SAME work...

    Any Super-stars in the vicinity?

    I started in 2001 and have played in EVERYTHING since - the windband's going on tour in June! The big band is still going, but it's crap, so a bunch of us have started up a new one and we had our debut at the KK may ball on saturday. Mr. Clayton is still there, and he was meant to be...
