Collaborative Symphony (Arrangers can be used as well as composers)

I would like to see who would be willing to work on this. It will have these four movements:
I  Adagietto -Allegro con fuoco: parts to reserve { introduction ( Adagietto, D Æolean or Phrygian), A theme (Allegro con Fuoco, D Æolean) , B theme (Choose tempo, A Ionian, Mixolydian, Dorian, or Æolean) , Development (Choose tempo and mode), coda (D Ionian, Bundled with transitions), transitions}
II Lento e Cantabile {A theme (Lento, E Ionian or Mixolydian), B theme (Not faster than Andante or slower than Largo, More must be related to E Ionian or Mixolydian (whichever one the A theme is in) ) variation on B theme (Between Larghissimo and Moderato), coda (E Lydian), transitions}
III Scherzo: Vivace Trio: Andante {Scherzo theme (C Ionian) , trio theme ( D Ionian) , outro (D or E Locrian) }
IV Finale Allegro con Brio {A theme (D Æolean, Allegro con Brio), Rehearsal mark A, Mark B, Mark C, Coda (D Ionian) }
Please request one of the sections in brackets.  Soon I will get the score set up so people can work on it. By the way, the person doing the introduction needs to wait until the A and B themes are done before fully creating the introduction.

If you are unfamiliar with large orchestras, you can compose for some instruments and let an arranger make the other parts.

One you have claimed a portion to work on, you need to request access to the file. In the message space give a link to your Musescore profile and state which portion you have claimed. Then while you wait for your request to be accepted, prepare. After your request is accepted, reply to your comment and state that you are now working it. Download the file and do your work. When you are done, note so in the comments and upload the file to Google Drive. If you do not rename it, the new file will automatically replace the old one. Use system text to indicate where your work starts and stops. You will also need to add your name to the composer list and the copyright statement in score properties.

I also need someone with a pro account to to upload the finished work to his/her profile and share it with this group and many others.
If someone wants to make a piano reduction for the symphony that would be great too.

Support message

Hello all members of Orchestral Group. I am Nhat, come from Vietnam, I have a problem, I want to help you: now I am the manager of a group called Saigon Philharmonic Youth Orchestra. We have a music program in the near future, but we are short of material to perform. And I have a piano piece, so hopefully you can support and arrange it into Solo Violin and Orchestra? I sincerely thank!
I wish you good health!
Best regards!

In search of Orchestral Arrangers

Dear Musescorers,

I have an annoucement to make.
Because of the quantity of songs that I make and the exceedingly numerous, unfinished drafts I've got and my poor orchestration skills T.T, could someone kindly arrange a few pre-selected piano pieces of mine?
That will be really wonderful! ^^
Credits will be given to the arranger.

Pm if interested,

Sincerely,

-TheLight

Do you think that it is possible to cover (in MuseScore) a piece by Hans Zimmer? But closer(sound) to the incredible of the original?

Do you think that it is possible to cover a piece by Hans Zimmer in Musescore? But closer to the incredible of the original or like this arrangement? --> (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8-wAvbxB7D8)
If it's possible someone could make an arrangement or cover of that song?
i see it very difficult to me to make but i'm still trying but seeing this the in the same way to make that incredible Epic orchestra masterpiece from Hans Zimmer

Percussion sounds

I do some orchestral, concert band, and chamber music and I am seeking to get more comprehensive percussion sounds for playback.

Ideally, I would appreciate snare, tympani, and cymbal rolls, and also a more realistic bass drum sound than MuseScore’s default drum set has.

MuseScore’s manual mentions using other “sound fonts” but the discussion is above my understanding. I notice that MuseScore percussion staff properties invites me to edit a drum set and also to “load” one different than that included. It is looking for a file with the suffix “.drm”. Where might I find such a file?

I would appreciate anyone’s help, but be aware that I would probably need to be lead by the hand and every step would need to be explained.

Thanks in advance.

Thank you!

Hello everyone! This is just a little project that I have been working on (https://musescore.com/knviolain/prelude-in-f-minor-100-follower-special)... The main message I wanted to get out was a huge THANK YOU! for all the support I have received! I just hit 100 followers! To celebrate having 100 followers, I started a patreon page, where you can help me pay for Pro status here on Musescore. For any contribution that you are able to make, I will will be giving you early access to my sheet music, as well as priority in the request list. For higher contributions, I will also be posting making-of videos, and you will be able to go into more specifics about what you want your requested arrangement to entail (difficulty, instrumentation, etc.) Normal requested sheets will be arranged for piano. I will try to be releasing one normal requested sheet per month, as well as one requested by a Patreon supporter. Thank you! https://www.patreon.com/knviolain (the link to my patreon)

Miniature Piece: Ravel's Pavane

UPDATE: Parts and Click Track available here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3YrrAZMsKtxeThVUFhMOW04V00/view?usp=sharing
(Paladin maybe ignore this keyboard part as the imslp piano part is actually playable on a piano XD also strings, I'd rather you use the imslp parts too as they mark out divisi versus stops, but whichever you want!) The click track has different cowbells on main beats, with claves on the eighth notes. It has 2 count in bars. Enjoy and tune haha!

Hey again guys!
With delays to star wars, it's time to get something else done!
We're playing Ravel's Pavane pour une Infante Défunte for small orchestra!
Parts: (hopefully one to a wind part)
2 flutes (Shahvardaan 1st, Vanessa 2nd. Other flute players welcome to sign up still though)
1 oboe (TAMC on cornet)
2 clarinets (Bummucus on both, unless another clarinetist wants to record)
2 bassoons (me on euphonium)
2 horns in G (me)
Harp* (Paladin)
Violin 1, div a2 with double stops
Violin 2, div a2 with double stops
Viola "" "" (shadow 8va, and I can transpose it down, or else I'll figure something out)
Cello "" with triple stops (me and Contra on bass)
Bass "" without stops I believe (me and Contra)

We are playing it to the original tempo of 54 bpm, not the modern day 80 cause it sounds rushed XD

-Strings (shadow and contra) maybe record 2/4 times for each violin, 2 for viola, 2 for cello, and 1/2 for bass. MUTE IF YOU CAN
-winds try not to double parts. Everyone gets solos, even clarinet 2 haha! So try to claim your part. I'm pretty sure we have 2 flautists so I'm mainly talking to you guys.

Parts can be obtained from imslp.org. a click track is coming out ASAP with a new edition of parts by yours truly haha so feel free to use either edition (strings may be clearer on the public domain version as I slacked on differentiating divisi and stops)

*Paladin I'd ideally like you to play the piano part found on the imslp page if you don't mind! If it's too hard do your best and we'll fix it in my mixing studio XD also you may wanna record the string parts (particularly viola haha) on vibraphone or something
