I’m not sure if this is relevant to other states, so for the record, I’m in Indiana, and the Solo/Ensemble event is through ISSMA.
My question regards transposing music for instrumentation changes. That is, if I have a trio consisting of flute, clarinet, and alto sax, can they perform a piece originally composed or arranged as a flute trio? And if it’s okay, do I give the judge the original AND the transposed score, or just the original? The ensemble is in Group III, so I don’t think it’s a problem, but I would hate to mess up the kids’ performance.
Thanks in advance for any help/input!
