2112

Hey, I was wondering if anybody has found a very good "FULL SHOW" based on the song 2112, if not I was maybe thinking of trying to make one. I know that there is one by some college band that is pretty good but it is only like a 3 min show and I was looking for like a full, and well done, HS or DCI show. If I end up making a show based off of this, please also let me know if you'd be interested in helping me :) THX fellow DCI lovers!

Thank you all! be sure to watch for a summer original competition! :D

*I did average out a little bit the scoring of the scores, so some scores scored higher in caparison to others than what is written, but they all had some really great ideas!!*

I’m updating “Shorts for Trombone” and need suggestions for songs to add

You may have seen my “Shorts for Trombone.” It is by far my most popular score, probably because it pops up if you search  for a lot of popular music. It has not been updated in a while and I would like to add a whole bunch of new excerpts to it. If you have any suggestions, comment them below and I will add pretty much anything.  
I am also interested in creating versions of my shorts for concert pitch treble, Eb treble, F treble, and Bb treble, and a version in bass clef an octave lower than the current version so that more people can play my shorts. I am not pro, so those would be something you would have to ask for.

Here’s the score: https://musescore.com/user/2878026/scores/2800021

Orchestration Practice Competition!!

Well I decided to do a competition here in the spring while waiting for the summer competition :D

RULES!

you must do an arrangement of this polka type piece -
( https://musescore.com/robin_m_butler/the-minute-polka )
using this template -
( https://musescore.com/robin_m_butler/the-minute-polka-template )

You must be creative! this competition is all about being creative with the colors in the orchestra, the winning score will be judged on usages of color and creativity! :D

Deadline: Must submit before April 1st. (unless not enough entries have been made, then I will change it to May 1st)

Have fun Everyone! :D

(put links to your arrangements down below!)

And once the submissions are closed, I will post a score with my own Orchestration :D

For those of you who wanted to do the Competition (ANNOUNCEMENT)

Sorry all, not enough people entered, and it's the day before February, so I regret that I will now end this because not enough entries wee given. :(

But... I am thinking I will do another competition for the summer. and it will be nature themed, so stay tuned for that!! :D

(and that competition will be for any type of ensemble. I might do a prize, but we will see :D)

Wait What?!

I can't believe it! I'm about to hit 50 followers (only need 7 more)! I know that it isn't mush, but it is something right? Tell if you would like to see an original composition, or an arrangement of a song you like. I'm going to take probably 3-5 ideas so choose wisely as I'm putting this discussion in all the groups I'm in.

Does anyone want to do a Christmas competition? :D

If any of you do, here is what you will be doing!

Write an 'Arrangement' or an 'Original' Christmas song using one of these instrumentations!

***NOTE: you do not need to use ALL the instruments given. Like you could do just Horn and Strings for example. but you cannot mix different Instrumentation Groups***

No time limits, the only limits are your imagination and the instrumentation (and that it has to be Christmas music)! :D

This comp. will not happen if we get less than 5 people, so comment below if you want to, and then post your score's link down below once you have finished it.
*DOES NOT HAVE TO BE POSTED TO MUSESCORE* you can upload to Drive and put that link here too :D
For those who upload to musescore, make sure to put *CMC* in the Title, Thanks!

The winner will receive an UltraHQ Audio!! :DDD
*Conditions for Audio: Must be an original work or a public domain work for Audio. If not, Audio will go to the runner up*

I will decide the deadline once enough people have commented! :D

Christmas Contest - Win Prizes!!

Hey Everyone,

I thought it might be a fun idea to create a contest to arrange a Christmas song. It can be for drum corps, or marching band, or whatever... but the rules are simple:

1 - You must be a member of this group
2 - You must post your arrangement here
3 - You must submit before December 20, 2017

It is also important to mention that it is not necessarily the best arrangement that can win, but the most interesting or unique (not necessarily technically the best) can be chosen.

The judge for the contest will be Key Poulan!

There will also be 2 categories - 18 and Under and Over 18.

First prize winner in each category will receive the DCI 2017 Blu-Ray Deluxe Bundle (https://store.dci.org/collections/audio-video/products/dcirnv8103-2017-blu-ray-deluxe-bundle)

Second prize winners will receive 2 tickets to any DCI show (except finals).

Third prize winners will receive a DCI sweatshirt (or from the drum corps of your choice).

I have also posted a template that can be used as a starting point. You can feel free to use this basic arrangement as a starting point for your own arrangement of the same song:

Current List of DCI Arrangers & Composers

Thought it could be interesting to put together a current list for reference of all DCI arrangers & composers by corps and role for 2018 season. I will update this first post as we go along (and will try to invite each of them to this group :-) ).
