Hello, I have been asked to lead an amateur orchestra to perform The Sound of Music musical at a theatre. I heard the piece but haven't seen the 1st violin part. Does anybody know if I can look at it somewhere online to check if I would be comfortable to do this? Unfortunately the theatre has not got the music yet themselves.

Thanks!!

Dax

You may be out of luck. Every time I've played that it's been a rental. Why don't you ask the orchestra to scan it in for you before you make the decision.
Have you lead any other musicals?

Thanks Fiddlerman. I listened to it on YouTube and I should be fine. I have lead  Thoroughly Modern Millie and West Side Story before. It is the typical thing that they haven't received the rental music yet. Unfortunately happens lot. Never mind. I like a challenge :)
