Thoughts on this show idea?

So I had this idea for a show called "A Part". The show is about being apart, separated, from something but still being a part of that. In its essence, the show is about stars and how they are so lonely as individuals in the universe but they are a part of the universe, something much greater than themselves. This show theme is giving me really Blue Knights vibes and I just wanted your thoughts on if this could make a show. If anybody is interested I started writing some pit and soloist stuff that fits the theme really well, and if you want to take a shot at this theme I could send those over to you! Thanks for your thoughts, any comments are appreciated.

Drumline Cadences

 Hello everyone,

I am currently looking for anyone who would be interested in having some drumline cadences written for their group/band. I have a fair amount of experience in writing for drumline and am looking for ways to further improve and refine my skills.

If anyone is interested let me know. I am willing to accommodate particular needs/requests and prepared to meet any possible deadlines (no charge). 

Thanks! :)

Timbre for con sordino F horn?

in Brass

Hi!  I seem to recall there used to be a way to specify/choose various muted brass timbres, but I'm having trouble relocating that info: am I misremembering?  (My present need is for an F-horn "con sordino," but I'd appreciate the general knowledge of either how to or where to find such timbre mods.)  Thanks!

This is how all high school Clarinet sections are.

Clarinet 1, 2, and 3 all play as separate sections. The Clarinet 1 section always has all of the try hards on that row. They can never really play together with each other because they are always trying to show that they can play their parts better than all of us sitting behind them. Whenever there is a really technical part (With lots of INK! LOL!) they are the ones who are NEVER afraid to try it, while playing confidently at full volume. Basically these are the only players you can hear out of the entire section for most of the piece. The Clarinet 2 and 3 sections are more unified than the first. We are the players that sit behind and we are the first to be ok with not knowing how to play our part and pulling our clarinets down and letting the firsts handle those difficult parts. The ONLY thing these two rows can do better than first is stay playing together. This is because before even discussing, it is understood that when it comes to the difficult parts we all collectively REST. while they continue. You can never hear us when we are playing by ourselves, and you won't ever hear us playing over the Clarinet 1 row like we are supposed to, because we are always unsure of how our parts are supposed to sound.
