FLEXible Solutions for Non-Perfect Instrumentation

Clinic Synopsis:

Do you have an ensemble with less than perfect instrumentation? We all do! This clinic will give practical solutions to help directors navigate this challenge. Whether you are at a small program or a very large program, this clinic will brainstorm ideas on how to use Flex arrangements, fully adaptable arrangements, and everything in between. The clinic will demonstrate effective use of these types of arrangements. Current repertoire ideas and suggestions will also be discussed.
