Music Composers Unite!
I have recently completed a composition, written for a 7-trumpet ensemble (with flugelhorn!) for my school. I started on it during the Christmas break, took about a week or two to complete. I was aiming for an exciting fun piece to play with interesting effects and more dissonance than I usually use. I don't know what else to say, but please let me know your thoughts, thank you!

This all has a very nice even keel feel and arrangement. Captures that holiday feel I so often hear in brass. There seem to be no distinct highlights in this. No build ups. In some places the trumpets almost seemed to loose momentum in sound which I though peculiar. I kept wanting to hear lower brass louder and maybe an Eb trumpet. Nicely done overall aside from those minor nits.
As much as I like this the way it is, I can totally hear it scored for a Canadian Brass type group. Much more tonal variety and range while maintaining a bright brass sound.
