Percussion Ensemble Festival Copyright and Recordings

The Director must furnish TWO (2) sets of original scores with the measures numbered on each piece to be performed.​ DUPLICATION OF PUBLISHED SCORES IS NOT ACCEPTABLE WITHOUT WRITTEN PERMISSION FROM THE COPYRIGHT HOLDER! If original scores are not provided, ensembles may still perform, but will not be adjudicated. A participation trophy will be awarded and the ensemble will not be considered for class awards.

When attending a Director’s Choice Festival, we prefer you only perform published music you have purchased. If you are performing an arrangement of a copyrighted song, you will need to prove that you have permission for the arrangement. If proof is not available at the site, Director’s Choice and our recording contractors will not produce archival recordings.

Recordings provided by Director’s Choice are for archival purposes only. A mechanical or synchronization license must be obtained if you intend to distribute. Director’s Choice and its recording contractors are not responsible if you choose to distribute these recordings without a mechanical license.
