(I don't know if it'd help any to say I have the Texas All-State music 'cause I don't know where you are ^_^)
Only one piece goes out of my range completely, the other two are fine (no higher than an A). It's just that one technical piece has a couple licks where it's consistently high and that blows my lips for the rest of it, so any chance I did have of hitting the high C's and B's at the end is gone. It also has a key change where a high Bb begins a run which you really have to be comfy playing to hit consistently. I know this is the thing that's holding me back because I saw the comment sheets from Region Orchestra and everthing was "bad high range" "trouble with top notes", etc. and nothing else.
