Marching Band Show Ideas

Exactly as the title implies, I’d like for people to bounce their ideas for marching band shows off of me. I’m a high school junior trained in percussion and various string instruments, and have a private teacher actively teaching me theory. It won’t be overnight, but I plan to write something like a show for my school’s marching band before my time there is done.

Original DCI Show (Need some writers!!)

Heyo!

I need another fellow brass writer and a front ensemble writer! Please comment if your interested!!

Pieces for the show:

Music of the Spheres - Phillip Sparke
Year of the Dragon - Phillip Sparke
Mother Earth Fanfare - David Maslanka
Requim for Band - Quincy Hilliard

Heres the youtube playlist if you want to listen. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hq7z0FMFwVM&list=PLC_aQpeaEdbrCNJMuqzpz_L2Ski6eOKcp&index=1

Please help me and a friend out! Thanks!

Please make this song

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mTpGF6otM1Q It's called Breadfan and our band loves the song so much that our band teacher, he errrr banned (or band, if i wanted to be punny) the song. So he took away the song from us and we don't have the music for it. Some of the best players remember it, but most forgot. So it would be appreciated if someone could bring our lovely breadfan back to us so we can be happy yet again because we hate our band teacher and vice versa and we want our breadfan back.

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

Musecorps Competition #0.1!

Just a reminder that if you're planning on submitting something for the competition, the deadline is tomorrow. A lot of you have commented, but nobody has submitted yet. Is anyone planning on submitting something? And if so, should I push the deadline back by a few days?

Thanks for any feedback!

Musecorps Competition #0!

Hello everyone! The 2018 Drum Corps season is over, and I figured it was time for me to start this group up again. Therefore, I've decided to hold the first competition that I talked about in this groups' other post!

This first competition is basically a test. It's just for fun, you could say. If enough people participate, I'll hold another one in the future, and possibly include some level of prizes. Just depends on how many people participate!

The Competition:
I thought we'd start off easy. Create a drum corps style arrangement from any piece (s) written by Ludwig van Beethoven. The arrangement should be longer than one minute in length, but no more than three. You can include percussion if you want, but just brass would be alright too! When you have something completed, post it to MuseScore and post a link to it in a comment on this post. I'll live submissions open until a week from today, Tuesday 9/18 at around 2:00 PM EST.

If you have any comments or questions, leave them below!
