You might want to subscribe to the community music list. The address is community-music(AT)onelist.com Community bands throughout the U.S. planning to present a concert frequently list their program there. The amount and variety of non-march non-show tune music out there is pretty impressive. Holst has been mentioned; also stuff like Light Cavalry Overture, 1812, Ravel's Bolero, Bach preludes and cantatas, folk tunes, etc.
