Is there any ruling in entertainment contests as to how many brass instruments a player is allowed to play on stage? I know we are allowed to play percussion instruments in addition to our brass instrument and an exception is always made when Dances and Arias is performed. I ask this question because at Porthcawl yesterday the principal cornet of Flowers played a flugel during one item. No real need for it because the flugel player for the band was, to say the least, superb. Incidentally Flowers - you were magic on stage!
