Composers who write grades 1&2 do a great job of doubling, which may not necessitate the need of horns,oboes,bassoons and such. I realize there are many arrangements that compensate for bands with limited instrumentation. Is that your point? If so, point we'll taken. Being a horn player I've always started and maintained strong horn sections. If I were an oboe player I would have oboes in all my bands. We should all be master teachers promoting all instruments, not compensating for our failure to have balanced ensembles when it comes to chosing UIL concert music.
