My high school played both Incantation and Dance and Variations on a Korean Folk Song. I played EE flat contra bass clarinet(yes it does exist) but I had to transpose it in less than a day from BB flat contra bass clarinet. That was for Wind Ensemble where we played Incatation and Dance and that rocked! I played the Korean Folk Song for Wind Symphony on B flat and trust me, on first, it isn't that easy. Gotta quick fingers. I think probably the most challenging song you can play is Aegean Festival Overture. Too many time changes and offset rythms that follow through. All those music pieces aren't that hard if you practice it.

Have fun while you can, especially on band trips around the state.

If by Holst, you mean the planets, then we sight-read Mars once in class, and we have it and Jupiter in our folders. However, I don't recognize any of the other standards as things we've played...

El Dorado's concert band(symphonic band?) played Variations on a Koren Folk Song for festival last year. It's a pretty interesting piece...lol.

We played Incantation and Dance my freshman year. Good learning experience... learned that our percussionists don't have any rythym ><

We have Folk Song in our folder too, but we havn't preformed it. I get seventeen come sunday (the 1st move) stuck in my head all the same! My friend Corey and I will sing it together between classes hehe

Whoa, everyone's played Variations. We played it last year, which is the same year our rival John Burroughs did it for their field show, which caused a joke to go around that we're copycats (interestingly, both our wind ensembles are doing Vesuvius. Those copying knaves!)

I.A.D. is not allowed to be played without a competent percussion section. Especially the person on the "whip".

Which I was honored to play at PCC when I was up there back in 89?? Anyway, I was one of 2 euphonium players--the other one being very good. And we were short on percussionists. So I got to play the "whip" part. I was loud. Of course.

Haha no doubt! The year we played IAD our whip percussionist had no rhythym. I have no idea how he even got to be a percussionist. It was terrible. The WHOLE band could clap the rythym and the person who actually had the part couldn't do it for more than 4 measures in a row to save his life. Luckily by preformance time (and like a bajillion hours of practicing at home and in class) he was able to do it.

our symphonic band or Wind II (our lower 2 groups) played both of those songs- I didn't play them except helping them out, so I don't really remember much...
