Piano and Oboe duet for Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

in Piano

My friend and I would like to do a duet together on this song, but I haven't found any pieces that are just Oboe and Piano, I know it's kind of a weird combo, but if anyone can make one or knows of one that'd be great! I was going to make my own, but I figured if there was someone out there who's already done it or knows how and is willing to, they could do a better job than me, so please let me know!

Timbre for con sordino F horn?

in Brass

Hi!  I seem to recall there used to be a way to specify/choose various muted brass timbres, but I'm having trouble relocating that info: am I misremembering?  (My present need is for an F-horn "con sordino," but I'd appreciate the general knowledge of either how to or where to find such timbre mods.)  Thanks!

This is how all high school Clarinet sections are.

Clarinet 1, 2, and 3 all play as separate sections. The Clarinet 1 section always has all of the try hards on that row. They can never really play together with each other because they are always trying to show that they can play their parts better than all of us sitting behind them. Whenever there is a really technical part (With lots of INK! LOL!) they are the ones who are NEVER afraid to try it, while playing confidently at full volume. Basically these are the only players you can hear out of the entire section for most of the piece. The Clarinet 2 and 3 sections are more unified than the first. We are the players that sit behind and we are the first to be ok with not knowing how to play our part and pulling our clarinets down and letting the firsts handle those difficult parts. The ONLY thing these two rows can do better than first is stay playing together. This is because before even discussing, it is understood that when it comes to the difficult parts we all collectively REST. while they continue. You can never hear us when we are playing by ourselves, and you won't ever hear us playing over the Clarinet 1 row like we are supposed to, because we are always unsure of how our parts are supposed to sound.

Welcome to this Group!

In this group, all brass players will perform in an ensemble. We will not physically gather and play together. Instead, we will film ourselves and I will put all of the filmed videos together. It will look very cool!
