Need suggestions?

I'm playing in a group of two violins and two violas (including myself) for solo ensemble. We're looking for a piece, and would like to do a modern song (we've looked at Titanium and Rather Be if that gives you an idea of what we want) but haven't been able to find anything that suits our skill level, which is about beginner to intermediate. Does anybody have suggestions or links to sheet music? Thanks!

Interesting Quartet Pieces

Hello!
I am an eighth grade viola player. ME and 6 other people are looking for a song to play at GMEA Solo and Ensemble this year.

If you can help me, the song:
-Must have 1st and 2nd violins, Viola, Cello, and Double Bass Parts.
-Cannot be an arrangement of a modern tune.

Are there any other middle school students who can give us a fairly simple song to learn and master, hopefully earning us a high rating.

(We play fairly well, so don't be afraid to give us something challenging. :)


THANK YOU!!!

The viola

A viola is taken to hospital. The doctor examines her and says:
"There's nothing wrong with you. But you broke your bow. How did that happen?"
Viola: "I only remember the thunderous applause for the composer."
Doctor: "Do you remember his name?"
Viola: "No. I think he was on the first page of the sheet music."

The Violin

A violin is taken to hospital. The doctor examines her and says:
"There's nothing wrong with you. But you broke your bow. How did that happen?"
Violin: "I only remember the thunderous applause for the composer."
Doctor: "Do you remember his name?"
Violin: "No. I think he was on the first page of the sheet music."

Introduction & Transposing

in Brass

Hello.  I'm a new member of the group & a fairly inexperienced musescore user.  I've been playing the trombone for 51 years & the euphonium & baritone for 42.  @ 10 of those years professionally & 25 semi-professionally, & the rest just for fun.  I've played in many groups of different styles, but my favorites have been big band, brass quintet, & symphony orchestra.  I've also enjoyed tuba-euphonium ensembles & trombone ensembles.  Merry TubaChristmas is one of my favorite annual events.  Due to pain & wear and tear, I've recently had to put down my trombone - at least for  a while.  But I'm enjoying playing my new euphonium.  I've been arranging for big band & brass ensembles for more than 20 years.

This may be the wrong place for this question... Is there a way to transpose & print the transposition?  Thanks in advance.
