Theme

 I am looking for theme for an imaginary annual award ceremony for animation. If you are interested please say so. If you already have a piece in mind, get it to me asap. Thanks. Also the name is the Spring Creek Awards for Animation, if it helps. I would prefer a fanfare, but anything goes.

On notating Swing rhythms

I am currently polishing up an arrangement for Glorious Morning for marching band when I hit a road block. You see, The entire piece is in a triplet swing, and whenever I have encountered this in marching band I always saw it as notated how to swing the notation right next to the tempo, but the piece has the first note both held and not in some places, so how should I go about notating this? Should I stick to 4/4, and just choose one to write as a triplet, and if so, what, or should I write it in 12/8 and leave a note saying "Conduct in 4?"

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.
