Music corps should NOT do

Recommended Posts

My buddy and I have always said that for high school groups there should be a fee to play certain things, that only should be performed by top notch groups. For example, having to listen to bad renditions of "Maleguena," "West Side Story," "Phantom of the Opera," etc. is nauseating at times during a high school season.

One of the reason's I judge so seldom nowadays is because of pieces like this. Hearing multiple groups in the same festival, playing the same music, almost always playing the music poorly, I just can't deal with it. I judged a show, the year after SCV did Les Mis, where 3 bands out of 9 played Les Mis. Each one worse than the one before.

As for more music groups shouldn't do:

No.  NO.  What they lack in skill, they make up for with enthusiasm. :laughing:
