    Okay, not really. But wouldn't be a hoot if it were true? (And if figure skating did the same thing? :D )

    No. Freedom is a good thing.

    I think there should be a list for figure skating and if you want to skate a program to a song on that list you must present it to a panel pre-season for approval. :lol:

    ROFL....yeah, actually (though I'm surprised the flutist ban list makes no mention of Telemann for the pre-college...isn't he obligatory?

    I'm just glad it was the Appassionata and not the Pathetique, or I'd be constantly getting in trouble for contraband Beethoven.

    Look at the note they had to add at the beginning. I can't believe so many people took the thing seriously. :lol:

    That would be funny, except for the stories I've heard of them expelling students in the past, who were caught practicing other "primitive" forms of music, like' jazz. Sad, considering that forms like improvisational jazz (you have to be able to improvise in every key) and some bluegrass (ever hear Flatt & Scrugs' "Orangeblossom Special"?) are just as hard to play as "classical" music.

    I know a few people who play "traditional acoustic" music who started out as "classically trained" musicians, including one who, yes, graduated from Juilliard. There's a reason they've chosen to play for contra dance bands performing at folk festivals instead of in concert halls where the audience sits in stuffed-shirt silence. ;)

    I was perplexed at the clarinet choices myself. Fantasiestucke? Really? Instead of, say, the Mozart Clarinet Concerto, or either of the Brahms Sonatas?

    DaveRocks Wheeeeeeee!

    When "in the past"?

    Which is what?

    It's a bit pleonastic to say "in the past." Surely everything that's happened has happened in the past ;)

    I sent this to a friend who went to Juilliard, and it was the first thing to cheer him up in months.

    Thank you so much for posting this, Wyliefan :)
