Re: UIL program "too similar"?
No issue at all.
The ONLY way it should effect you is if you are trying for Honor Band. They judge the performance as a whole. They would probably advance the performance that has multiple styles executed very well vs. same style executed very well.
How do judges view playing two pieces that are a very similar style at UIL? I picked my two grade twos based on what I think my band can successfully accomplish (newly moved up to 3C, and going to contest 3 weeks earlier than normal). Colliding Visions and Expectations - different composers (obviously), different key signatures, but both start slow and then have a faster section. Band sounds decent on both, but are we going to get docked (officially or unofficially) for playing two similar style pieces?
