I read a book recently, it was all about wind band. Every chapter was written by a differant composer of todays era. Each chapet had sub chapters, one of them was about the future of wind band. Most of the authors were very optimistic about the future of band, but David Holsingers point really stuck out in my mind and I must say I agree with it %100 even though I may get flamed on this forum by the fairly high number of orchestral players here, but I think that orchestra is liveing on it's past reputations. As Mr. Holsinger said, there's lots of new orchestral music being written every year, but it's rarely performed, and it's almost imposible to find recordings of it. Wind band is just full of potential that I really think will just explode in the next couple decades, where I really don't see symphony orchestra going anywhere except movie scores... What are your opinions on this?
