CONCERT  FESTIVAL  LITERATURE  LIST

Tennessee Bandmasters Association is again working on the literature listing for our concert bands.  Below you will see some instructions and a form.  Please send any potential edits or corrections so that we can act upon them in a timely manner.  The intent is to reduce the errors in the 4000+ listings.

Thanks for your assistance.    

   

Hello everyone,

Attached is an excel document that contains all of the graded concert band literature. The list is set up so you can sort according to your preferences. As we discussed last week at all state, I need your assistance in locating discrepancies in grades, removing literature from the list, and making any other corrections. The goal is to have this list cleaned up by July 2014.

The link below will allow you to submit compositions for review. This link will be live till May 15 at which time no more submissions will be accepted.

2014-2015 All West High School Band Audition Music

First Download 

Here is the 2014-2015 All West Tennessee Senior Band Audition music rotation.  I would like to first thank all of the committee members who spent so much time compiling and transcribing this music.  A special thanks to Chelsea Negray who transcribed a large portion of these etudes.  

This music is posted here for your perusal.  You will notice that well over half of this music was used in previous years.  Our percussion sub-committee has had issue finding multiple-mallet etudes that are in the public domain.  If this is still an issue by the May meeting, it will be the suggestion of the committee to use current percussion audition materials. 

These are also the etudes in their entirety. Still to be discussed is how much should be assigned, and then how we will listen to it in our current audition system. 

Our plan is to present several options to the membership at the May meeting. We welcome your input and questions. Your email to me and the committee can be sent to ohsband11@gmail.com.

 

Chris Piecuch,

All West Senior High Band Audition Music Committee Chair
