we're playing "Strike up the Band" by George Bizet, "Glorioso" which is a magestic fanfare that gives me goosebumps when we play because it sounds so cool and we with very little balance play it very well, "(Meet)the flintstones" gee i wander where that's from, and "More Cowbell" from a Saturday Night Live skit. "Strike up the Band" is kinda hard though cause it's in 2/2 time, but the rest are very easy and are in 4/4 time

Just happened along this forum and was wondering about "Strike Up The Band" by Georges Bizet. Would it be possible for you to use the add melody and post a theme or two? Of all the time I've been interested in Bizet's music, never have I heard of that piece.

Second Suite in F: IV. Fantasia on the Dargason. =_= The flute part stinks in this.

Navigaton Inn and Danse Hellenica (a piece that was composed for us by Brian Wilson from Sonoma State) I'm playing flute and piccolo on both.

Studying:
- Haydn Adagio and Presto (also I prepared the piano accompaniment for both with Music notation SW to help with the learning and increase enjoyment)
- Haendel Sonata Hallenser I and I plan to play one of the parts at the school End of Year audition (probably the first adagio, with a recording of live Basso Continuo).
Plus a bunch of learning exercises from a Bántai-Kovács book

Pas Redouble by S. Sans, Tribute by Keaton (I think it's Keaton... Hum...), and Zions Walls (a version arranged just for our band) is what my high school Concert Band is performing in a week from Monday. Personally, I'm working on The Flight of the Bumblebee and Toccata and Fuge (my own arrangement) for a solo contest in a few weeks.

Solos: for state festival I'll be playing the Hindemith Sonata, but for fun I've been working on Taffanel's Andante Pastoral et Scherzettino, Enesco's Cantablie et Presto, Chaminade's Concertino (though I've had that for more than a year), Griffe's Poem, and the Mozart Concerti.

Yeah, I have no life.

<Added>

Man, I forgot to mention band music!

We're working on Strategic Air Command, Anthem for Winds and Percussion, and Court Festival. We never play music that's demanding, which is sad.

For the city music festival i'm playing concerto in C major and a really easy tone piece (since I need to spend more time on my concerto) called Nocturne V. I'm also doing a duet. It's the first movement from Sonato No.3. For band we're mostly doing boring stuff. One song is the James Bond theme which is kind of cool!

In wind ensemble, we're focusing on pieces for our pre-tour concert, and our tour.
For the ones for our pre-tour concert:
Ballad and Presto Dance
our commissioned work entitled Old Town Sketches
Valdres March
Chimes of Liberty
Washington Post March (?)

I think that's it...

Currently my band is playing Bolero and Gaelic Rhapsody.

On my own I am working on Hungarian Fantasie and Carmen Fantasie which are both really awesome pieces. I have to perform one of the two at my music programs spring concert which is making me really nervous Xp
