Oh, My God! Let me get this straight. I can understand that it is against the rules for either of you to play in the lower band. This is a common rule in most states that I am familiar with. I guess it scares me more than just a little bit that electronic instruments are allowed at concert band contest (except in cases were the score calls for them) or that your director would result to what amounts to a shenanigan.
Don't riot. It isn't worth it. Do what he says, smile a lot, nod when he talks to you and try really hard not to crack up laughing at him. He is to be pitied, not revolted against. Anyway, there's nothing worse in my opinion than revolting tubas.
