    symphonic band pieces

    I play in an adult community band - very good overall skill level. I am looking for high intermediate or advanced pieces (college level) to add to our library and play list. Suggestions and sources?

    I am also looking for solid arrangements for jazz band - again names and sources.

    Thanks in advance.

    For jazzband (big band?) go to : Jazz DVDs, Books, Big Band Arrangements, and CDs you can hear most charts online before you buy.

    You can never go wrong with some Alfred Reed. Holst is good too.

    We played it last year. Every time we finished it I felt like laughing like a madman.

    Re: symphonic band pieces

    For the community band, I'll second RB's suggestion of Reed and Holst, and add in Eric Whitacre. A lot of Whitacre's music is very simple but fantastic when played well, but he also writes very intricate and difficult music as well. If you have a good oboe player, then October (by Whitacre) would be great. I played it in my high school's band, and it can be played well at a lower level but it really shines when played by good musicians. I don't know sources very well, so I can't give you a website for that stuff.

    For jazz band (standard arrangement, assuming), places like Sierra Music, JWPepper, and others I can't think of off the top of my head are all on the internet. Stuff arranged by Bob Curnow and Sammy Nestico is bound to be good.
