David Pye: There are a LOT of extra players required for this program, and I have tried to keep their calls to a minimum, but it’s tricky because Holst uses most people in most movements. I would like to have full sections for the sectional rehearsals in the first few weeks. This will save me having to repeat everything later in then season as we start to put it all together.
