Iím entering a competition with this piece. I have been busy making small changes, correcting errors, and adding percussion.

The timing on Glockenspiel and Xylophone isnít 100%, but I probably donít have time to correct it.

Any comments before I send it off will be extremely appreciated.  :)

Itís the same link as in the opening post.
The new version has the number 4 in the title.

Good luck.   

I gave it another listen ..... It feels very tight and smooth.  It flows and works quite well. I didn't hear or see anything amiss in this version.

It's really a nice composition ..... to perform and play.

A little update on this composer competition I entered.

5 finalists were going to have ďfollow-the-scoreĒ videos of their piece put on YouTube and the one with most likes would win a Public Commendation Prize.

There were 92 entries in total and my piece was one of the 5 finalists. I ended up in 2nd place and I am verry proud.

I want to thank you for all your comments and feedback. Thank you so much.

I'm guessing the competition is not one in which the contestants and winners get feedback from the judges, right? Those contests with no entry fees are the best!

Very impressive work!  I'm not surprised it was judge one of the top winners.

No feedback,  ;) but thatís ok. Just fun to participate.  :) I found the competition rather by accident.
My publisher shared my other piece, Majestic Mountain, on Facebook and I followed the links.
Thatís where I found the competition.

Thank you all.
