    My son's band director is a flute player. last night at their concert, she demonstrated how she has washed the brass so low, as well as the percussion, you couldn't even here them. All night I heard clarinets and flutes up front. The other band director admitted it was awful. My other music D friend was too nice about it, and i haven't talked to my big band trumpet buddy yet, but I know what he's going to say, "get rid of her!"

    A quarter million dollars worth of brass and percussion not even heard...... it's sad to go to a concert and not get blown out of your chair.

    It is sometimes a shame that we do not take advantages of situations with a different balance of instruments to widen our horizons instead of dumping on the idea that brass is not there to bury everything else.

    If it was possible to get the brass and percussion to play more softly than the woodwinds, I would commend the director for achieving what most of the testosterone driven jocks will never understand. To be honest, I don't believe it though. The nature of a well played trumpet makes it heard even at pianissimo. So unless all of the players were wimps, there is probably more room for Q-tips than increased dynamics.

    Bachstul, I recommend that you take some lessons from that lady. She knows something that you need very dearly!

    Hi Rowuk,
    "The nature of a well played trumpet makes it heard even at (p)". I totally concur.

    Of course sometimes brass have to play softly as the piece indicates or loudly as the case maybe , it's what makes music worth listening to , the different dynamics and the sounds of the different instruments combining to make music so if a director takes it upon themselves to favor a section rather than the music their playing , it's not right. Anyway I think it's Wynton having a joke at the exspence of clarinet players .
