Pie wedge with that number of kids on three rows won't work. You need crescent moons. |
Go with, left to right:
2 clarinets, 6 flutes
6 clarinets, 5 altos, 6 horns
7 trumpets, 4 tones, bass clar, contra clar, 3 tubas, 6 trombones, tenor sax.
If you're playing literature that has the btone and bone part closely related, put the tones on the other side of your tubas and go trumpet/lowclar/tubas/tones/trombones/tenor.
You could also flip the entire back row low voice parts (after trumpets) and put tones behind the horns, but it dpends upon your instruments and music, really.
This sits your horns in front of your trombones (similar tone/parts), your tenor near your trombones, your low reeds with your tubas, and your "parts" together. Split your clarinets 2 and 6 on two parts (yes, you'll lose more when grades hit from the bottom than the top, so you'll be 2 and 4, and your bottom 4 will still have trouble balancing the top 2).
Can I get some assistance with a new seating chart for my band? I need to consolidate down to 3 rows and I want y'alls opinions on where top put folks. Here are my numbers:
Contra Bass Cl--1
I sure would love some thoughts on this. I try to make my set as pie-wedged as possible, but I'm having second thoughts on placements. Please help!!! Thanks in advance.
