Epic Kingdom Hearts III transcription yeeeeh

Just finished this transcription of Don't Think Twice today. I was really bummed out that no one tried to make a direct transcription and all the ones I did find were not faithful to the original so here's my take. Criticism is always welcome. I dunno check it out if you like I guess
This is the orchestra version by Kaoru Wada NOT the sung version

Banana contest 1

Write a song about a lonely tarantula that lives in a banana bunch.
The grand price is a vierual bunch of ripe bananas. Now, for a limited time, as a added amazing bonus, a free virtual tarantula. No, I'm lying. Must be the toxin from the tarantula bite that's affecting me. Dizzy dizzy it's all going dark.

CCC#2 - "The Wanderer"

 CCC#2 is here!

Based on the results of the survey I sent out on Friday 7th June, it occurred to me that several of the themes which I suggested, and asked you to vote on, would in fact fit quite nicely together. Therefore, for this second competition, I have found another painting by Caspar David Friedrich, since the response for “The Watzmann” was very good. I am also going to give a genre of music (as wide as possible, but still something to go on) and a short story available in the file below.

If you would like to help judge the competition, or have any other queries, please message on Musescore, or via discord @jte#9811


Details of the competition:

- The deadline will be in 4 weeks time (Saturday 29th June)

- The genre, as chosen by the survey will be “Film Music”. This is deliberately a very wide genre in order to give the contestants freedom of creativity. There will be an award for the most original take on the task, as with the first competition. 
Obviously this theme can be interpreted to fit your desires.

- The painting (shown below) and the story are both in the google docs file. If you have any issues accessing this file, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I will be happy to help.



Rules:

- Your work must be completely original/all your own work.

- Be nice when critiquing other people’s work. Constructive criticism is fine, but don’t be rude. If you do, you will be disqualified from the competition and banned from the group.

- All pieces and comments must be appropriate.

Please let me know if you’re planning on taking part. I’d like to have an idea of who might be competing.  

Thanks,
- Joe

I see how hard leading an orchestra by myself is now. :3
I don't have the time and energy to run this by myself, so now I'm adding bimonthly admin elections! :D

Admins MUST:
- Moderate the group (duh)
- Add people who have signed up
- Remove non-orchestral pieces
- Remove people who HAVEN'T signed up (looking at like half the orchestra here) This bugs me the most

Rules and Info

Alright, I'm going to be clarifying a couple things here.

First off, follow the MuseScore Central Guidelines, which can be found here:  
https://musescore.com/community-guidelines

Second, only add scores if you think they would be fit for the Orchestra.

Third, all files, like parts for a score, will be shared on OneDrive at https://1drv.ms/u/s!AgAEpzhHSvRYbjsQxxcD1A44KTk?e=HIgT6C

Have fun MuseScoring!
