Hi Krista,

When I played The Sound of Music, the books were arranged like this:
Clarinet 1 & 2
Flute and Piccolo
Bassoon and Oboe
There were no general reed books. There wasn't even a sax book or part in
the score. I never checked to see if there was a bass, A, or Eb clarinet
book in the box. When I did the show there was another clarinet player
so we shared a stand and the "Clarinet 1 & 2" book. Good luck it's a fun

For everyone else out there:
I think it was Chris Zello who asked about the existence of a text devoted
to the breakdown of show books. While I know of no such book, I'm sure
all of us on the Klarinet List have a large knowledge of shows we've played
in the past. I am volunteering to compile such a list if you e-mail me with
some information:
1. Name of show
2. Breakdown of books
3. Composer/Orchestrator if known

I will take all of your info and make a list that I will then post on the
Klarinet. I think this will be very helpful to many people so I look forward
to your imput. Please send all information to MICHAEL.CASSARA@-----.COM

Don't send it to the list!! I'm sure we are all getting quite enough

Until later,
Mike Cassara
Cleveland, Ohio
