   Conductor - Queensland Conservatorium Wind Orchestra
Regarding the repertoire available:

Part of my work at the Queensland Conservatorium is to investigate new music in respect of its
relevance to the training of conductors and as performance repertoire at all levels.

That information is also utilised in music selection lists by various festivals around Australia. The
listing of materials that follows is arranged in the grading commonly used in Australia. For your
information, the equivalent grading to the USA levels are:

        Premier: Grade 4 – 5
        A Grade: Grade 3 – 3.5
        B Grade: Grade 2½ - 3
        C Grade: Grade 1.5 – 2
        D Grade: Grade 1
        Novice: up to and including some Grade 1

This is not an exhaustive list and is prepared to assist you in your investigation of repertoire
available around the world. The list includes works for 2008, plus materials that have become
more readily available in Australia at that time. Some of the works are re-releases by the
publishers and I have included them as a form of assistance to the new generation of conductors.
“Popular” styles and medleys are not included.

This year works of Leroy Anderson are included to celebration the one hundredth anniversary of
his birth.

Many publishers produce advertising materials to promote their publications. Ask your music dealer to
obtain sample scores and recordings of published works.

As noted, this is not an exhaustive list, but a compilation of researched materials, available in Australia with
music supplied to me by the importer.

Your ensemble demands and deserves quality repertoire and it is up to you, the conductor, to spend the time
in finding it. It is my hope that this listing of quality band music has been of some assistance to you in that
search. Please feel free to contact me at the Queensland Conservatorium at any time.
