    Youth Adjudication Panel at Yorkshire

    A lot of your posts seem to be praising the Yorkshire Regional committee. Anyone would think you were the secretary or something . . . . .

    Area Test Piece Workshops

    It would make sense if there were no costs involved, but how many adjudicators are going to travel the length of the country to attend these workshops for nothing? If these guys offered their services free of charge I would imagine your suggestion might become a reality. To take wantapies...

    Are we being ripped-off!

    I've noticed a recent trend by some music publishers to publish brass band sets which come complete with what the publishers call 'World Parts'. These are parts that include Horns in F (covering flugel and Eb horns) Tenor Trombones in bass clef concert pitch, Bass Trombone in treble clef and...

    if you've never used it how would you know. i would imagine other publishers sales have risen with this facility. and how can it swing either way. if they listen to it and dont buy it - fair enough - but would they buy it in the first place? where do you put out your fancy zappy press...

    Who's going to pontins

    Open errata!

    Is this acceptable? You do get the odd error here and there, but a list of errors this long with todays modern technology just cannot be justified. Who published this music and how much did it cost? I think that all bands appearing at the 'Open' tomorrow should at least be given their...
