O Holy Night
This arrangement of O Holy Night was commissioned by St. Lukes United Methodist Church in Indianapolis, IN. They will premier the piece on December 3 and December 4. The piece will be available for purchase after that. If you have interest in performing this piece in December 2021 but after the 4th, we might be able to work something out so that you can get the score and parts early to start rehearsing with your ensemble. This would involve signing an agreement restricting your performance to after December 4, 2021.

More about using Split-Tracks
First, you are going to need a device that is going to play your click and backing tracks. If you are a beginner, the simplest device to use is a laptop, iPhone or iPad.
The cheapest piece of gear to split the signal coming from your phone, tablet, or laptop, is this 3.5mm TRS to dual quarter-inch cable you’ll find on Amazon for five bucks. You’ll plug the 3.5mm TRS end into your device and then plug the red and black quarter ends inch into two separate channels on your mixer. The Red will be the right channel containing the backing tracks, and the Black will be the left channel containing the click. If you would rather have your phone on stage, then you will need a stereo DI box which you can plug the dual quarter-inch ends into, and then out of the box, you will have two XLR cables that run to your stage snake and then to your soundboard.
Now that the signal from the smartphone is at the soundboard, you need to send the click and backing tracks to your musician's in-ear monitors.
