here's a trick to keep you occupied for the next time you play this piece. If your're tasteful, you can get away with doubling the bass trombone part everytime the double basses are playing. An old teacher shared this with me. Of course it depends on how much the conductor knows the score. One dude was on top of it and called me on it. I just told him I was warming up for the chorale. The last dude I played for was a fool and I played the whole concert.
