What are the merits of traditional instrumentation vs opening up to all players?
What resources would you recommend I use? I plan to have a warmup where the rhythm section plays a latin beat with a simple progression of I - ii/V while the winds play the scale and do some improv. Has anyone had success with a different warmup routine they would recommend instead?
What other types of questions should I be asking to prepare for this ensemble? I know music selection is a biggy but I haven't yet been able to dig into out library and see what we already have.
