Re: Traditional Number of songs for a band concert
To me the important factor would be can the group perform more than two pieces at an acceptable level, and how many groups are performing at the same concert. Also, some programs have limited music budgets and a small library to choose from.
Is it old fashioned of me to think that every band should be able to learn at least 3 songs for every concert they do? I have seen so many 2 song concerts lately. Tell me if I'm wrong, but 2 seems too short unless you're doing pieces of substance that have long durations. Some of our parents drive over an hour to get to our school. I'd sure hate to see my kid play almost nothing after driving for that long imho.
