I am a band director for a Junior High and our guard is using Cirque music this year. We did it Legally and paid the fee and got a contract. The fee is $10.00 per performance. I encourage all of you to pay the fee and do it legally if you are going to use the music.
1) some composer took a lot of time to create that music, they should get something from it.
2) You don't want them to find out later and be mad at you.
3) Respect them and their art. Obviously it means something to us if we want to use it so much. $10.00 is a bargain to be able to perform to their well composed music.
