Re: First Trip to Scotland

Been over there about 25 times...got a pretty good feel for what I like.

Re: Basic grade level focus

Tune specific. There is no rule against playing massed band scores for a contest. Having said that, there is little or no consideration for ensemble in doing so, and, sorry, in my opinion, it doesn't...
