I am considering changing my set up for band. I currently have flutes in front left, oboe front middle, clarinets front right. Trumpets behind flutes, saxes behind clarinets, horns in the middle. Low brass in back from right to left: trombone, euphonium, tuba.
How do you set up your band, and what is your reasoning? Instruments playing the same parts, intonation issues, accoustic issues, etc.
My set up that I’ve been working with is sort of similar to yours mine is as follows below but in an arc obviously.
Hopefully that makes sense.
The reasoning behind this is the pure size of the group. With 79 high school students currently we struggle to even fit them in the room that we are working with. The room itself is tiled so the sound is very muddy and bouncy. The largest areas of focus when planning this was placing the strong horns on the end of the 3rd row and to keep the percussion as close to the podium as possible.
