The string ensemble I'm in was playing at a festival. They had an adjudicator, and were marking us. Thee was only one other ensemble in our category, we'd heard they were pretty good. So we go up first, we played the Capriol suite by Warlock, we played great, few mistakes, some sections were a bit off in a place or two. So we finish up, and the adjudicator has ONE thing good to say, thats it! So we realise we've pretty much lost. So the 2nd group goes up. They play a CONCERTO!!! they had all there star players solo, while they hid thier awful ones. There soloists CARRIED the piece! It was NOT an ensemble piece. They won... and the adjudicator went on about how well they'd played. By the end he finally told us we lost (as if we hadn't figured it out). If we had played a concerto we would have beaten them no doubt, we have some amazing players. I was just really angry and annoyed. What are your views on this?
