YCOO - very badly needing English Horns, Violas and Double Basses!!!

Hello everyone.
You may already heard about us. We're the Young Composers' Online Orchestra ("YCOO"). Recently, we've started a new project - we're gonna play Elliot Butler's Drama for Orchestra No. 6.

In the process of preparing the parts for our members, we found out that we don't have any English Horns, Violas and Double Basses!

If you can play one (or more :P) of those instruments, please consider joining us either forever, or for the current project only. You could save a LOT of effort and hope we're all giving in our orchestra.

Have a great day,
Milan Steklý, moderator of the YCOO

Epic Piccolo Parts!!

Has there ever been a song or a piece that you have played in school band or Symphonic Band where the piccolo part during full FORTE Tutti sections was just so EPPICCC that you wished that there were more than 2 Piccolo players currently playing at once in your Symphonic Band at that moment!! If so name the piece.
The piece I played Piccolo in is called "The Witch and the Saint" by Steven Reineke

Does anyone have a ballad suggestion?

SO

I have had this project in the works, and have all the pieces lined up, except for a ballad, because I cannot find a ballad piece that fits the theme of this project. I will provide a link and the piece selection below for you to look up/listen to.

Theme Idea: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tpU_yjsGkHs

Repertoire:
ThE sMiLeR - Kübler, Wunsch, Krause, de Moura, and Heidicke
In the Hall of the Mountain King - Edvard Greig
Bird & Bela in Bb (1st Movement) - Don Sebesky
Asphalt Cocktail - John Mackey
**INSERT BALLAD HERE**
ThE sMiLeR Reprise
Dense - Univers Zero

And no, am not trying to make a Bluecoats show, even though it looks like it. These are just the best pieces that fit with this theme.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Audition Pieces

  
Hi everyone!
I'm planning on auditioning for a fine arts high-school for 10th grade, and I wondering what you guys recommend for audition pieces. I need two pieces, one contemporary and one classical.
I would say I am mid-to-late intermediate, and am in Suzuki book 3 currently.

I need two solo pieces, without an accompaniment.

Thanks in advance,
Vina (literal mochi)
