    Sounds like a fun march, but it seems to have some more dissonant parts as well, but the lower middle voices were not easy to hear. A band with some level should be able to appreciate it, and played at full volume this can be a powerful extension of their repertoire. I like how you've taken the standard march that we know from Sousa, and bent it a bit. I also like that you didn't simply repeat the opening section, but chose a quiet resolution.

    Thanks for listening, theo.
    I just tampered with some notes & dynamics to clean up lines &/or project better.
    Thanks for the input. (2:00 cst 8/20)

    I think it sounds better. My initial confusion about some of the harmonies is at least cleared up. Now all you've got to do is hope for some capable players...

    Hey Gary;
    That one's great and I enjoyed it a lot! - you are getting a pretty realistic sound to what you would actually hear if the band was playing live and outdoors, where Marching Bands belong!!
    Very good!
    Thanks for posting.

    Best regards,
    sd cisco

    Thanks for listening, SD.
    Playing level is probably around 2 1/2-3 on a sc ale of 5.
    Range & tempo are important. Runs are scale wise or chromatic.
