Re: Contest Music Suggestions - UIL - grade 1/2
March Winds by Gerald Sebesky
Looking for some ideas on a march and a couple of tunes for UIL C&SR.
1 flute part (only have one flute)
2 clarinet parts (1st part above the break - two players are very strong and two are decent)
2 trumpet parts (strong section 3 of the 7 are awesome, 3 avg, 1 weak)
unison trombone/baritone/tuba part or limited
trombone part (very young and not confident)
baritone (1 awesome, 1 average)
not too crazy on the tuba/bass cl/bari sax part (needs to be straight forward)
percussion - decent challenging snare part, simple mallet and aux parts, 6 players (3 are decent players)
I'd like something that could be made extremely musical with tempo and dynamics, but not put them to sleep. Half of the band are in 8th grade.
