My kids really enjoyed it. I worked with my trumpets for a few sectionals to ensure everyone was playing the correct accidentals and articulation. Also, we had a few percussion sectionals as well. |
I started it as a master sheet giving everyone the melody so I could start with the correct style right away. Issues that I can remember are flute tuning on some of the higher notes, especially a measure towards the end (I don't have a score to look at right now, so I can tell you the exact measure). I cut it to a flute solo and judges never said a word. At our pre UIL judges talked about adding more dynamics to the percussion, so we worked on that as well.
We ended up making sweepstakes last year, I would totally play that piece again.
anyone done the piece Bazaar for contest?? pros and cons
