Personally, I like the piece, that I know at least one band this year is playing, Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night. I love this piece. I also like a newer song called Invictus. Well, that is all. I also like the piece Into the Raging River, and Cajun Folk Songs. These are all great songs, but Do Not Go Gentle, is by far my far my favorite piece ever. If you get a chance to listen to it, then I suggest it. Also, First and Second suites by Holst are extremely good.

Blue Shades and the Hindemith March are great pieces. Especially the Hindemith, it's one of my favorites. I hope I get a chance to hear it.

I know a group that is playing INVICTUS, by Phillip Sparke, and DO NOT GO GENTLE INTO THAT GOOD NIGHT, by I forgot his name. Both really nice pieces.

I heard a really fine group play October by Eric Whitacre this past Saturday night. Truly emotional stuff.

Trumpet man I believe that you are referring to the San Bernardino All County Honor Band. They played four really great pieces. They played, "American Riversongs," "Life Dances," "October," and "The Legend of Alcobaca." All four of these sounded great, and if I was wearing a hat, I would tip it to all of those that participated in the event. Congratulations.

Is your band playing the original third movement from the Legend of Alcobaca? It is called Dom Pedro's Revenge. I was just wondering.

Our 3rd mvt is titled coronation of the dead queen. 3/4 time primarily begins with a trp fanfare very percussive and rhythmic throughout.

Is this the same under a different title, or is there another?

There is another piece. It was originally not allowed on the market, but I believe it was just recently allowed, because I played it this past month with the San Bernadino All County Honor Band. It is called Dom Pedro'e revenge, and is in 3/8 if I remeber correctly.

You guys sure are playing a lot of pieces this year. Most of them are great. Question though. Where do you guys find time to practice all of those?

That does seem like a lot of pieces. It's hard enough for our band to just get two pieces together at the same time, so I'd also like to know how all those can be prepared.
