Looking for a percussion writer who would want to contribute to a collaboration piece. Not looking for anything super serious just someone to write some cool battery and front parts for one of the pieces I've written.
I have put together a Christmas presentation for my Sunday School Children at church. It is for age groups 3 to 14. I am happy to share the whole lot if someone is interested. It is a chronological reading of the events starting with the prophecies and ending with the 3 wise men. All the readings are interrupted with appropriate carols. Only 4 strong readers have speaking parts. The rest are silent, which makes preparation and rehearsals easy. I live in South Africa, so some of the songs are in the Afrikaans language, but all the songs can be done in English except for Bethlehem Ster, but that is replaceable. I have done an power point presentation to accompany the whole lot. You can contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org
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!

I've just finished updating a score and now I can't upload it. I try deleting it and re uploading but now I can't re upload or upload at all. Was wondering if I was the only one.
Got a bit of a late start due to some technical issues, but thought I'd live "blog" the San Antonio show, through out some thoughts and anyone else feel free to chime in... so, it's 2:56 PM in San Antonio.... Oregon Crusaders are on the field
Hey! So I'm starting work on a project called "Wake Up" and I'm looking for ideas of some possible songs to put in it. They can either be from this website or big professional works.
The show theme is more on the depressing/somber side with a twist at the very end. (Not spoiling anything yet) But help would be appreciated with the musical selections and also a percussion writer would be awesome!
I am currently working on my own drum corps piece using music by Thomas Bergersen in his album "Illusions." Please check it out and let me know what y'all think. Check the description to see what I plan to do with that piece. Please feel free to critique it and give me ideas. I hope y'all like what I have so far. Anyway here's the link. https://musescore.com/user/10964131/scores/5171039
Oh and if you don't know Thomas Bergersen I recommend you check him out. Listen to Two Steps From Hell.
Seems Star of Indiana / Brass Theatre / Blast! does not get near the attention it should in this community.
Star had such an incredible horn line (2 valve G horns for the entire run???) and Jim Prime's arrangements were excellent.
Wondering if anyone here ever had the chance to see them live?
Here is a medley of various Star charts -
i love it
