Looking for Source Music for Marching Band Show

I'm looking for some good source music for a marching show that I'm going to be starting here pretty soon. If you have any ideas please contact me. If you want to help or join my team that would be great as well. It's a plus if you live in Central Texas (Austin) so that we can collab pretty often and closely.
I already have ideas for my show starting with:
- Either a 3 or 4 movement show
Some pieces I'm thinking of using come from the following composers:
- David R. Gillingham
- Gustav Holst
- Tchaikovsky
- David Beidenbender
- Alan Hovhaness 
- Ivan Trevino

Summer 2019

Just curious how many of y’all are getting ready for drum corps auditions? Or if you’ve already auditioned how’d it go? Where are you going to march? Maybe we can meet up over the summer (probably not but you never know)

I’ll be on the road once again with the Blue Devils for my age out

MuseScore Drumline Not Working

Hey there! For some unknown reason, my MuseScore Drumline Extension quit a few days ago, and I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling both MuseScore and MuseScore Drumline. It will not play—even when I'm adding the notes in on the software—and there's no playback. I didn't do anything to make it stop working, but maybe I can keep trying to reinstall it and see if it works. If anyone has a similar problem, please let me know as soon as possible. I have a huge drumline project due, and if MuseScore Drumline does not work, I won't know what to do.
Thank you!

More Cymbal Sounds

I don't know about other people who use MDL but I think it would be great if cymbals had more options than just the six that are there. Some good ones would be:
- Crash chokes
- Hi Hat
- Tap chokes
- Sizzle sucks (also called splash chokes, sizz-ucks)
- Clicks

Examples of most of these are demonstrated in these videos:

Is there any chance that we can get more cymbal sounds in future updates of MDL?
