I'm not sure this is exactly the correct category for this, but it felt close enough. I, or rather, my band, is looking to arrange and play a public domain piece for our show next year, specifically Petrushka by Stravinsky. I know that to arrange a copyright piece you have to file a request and possibly pay a fee depending on the piece. I haven't been able to find any information regarding public domain pieces, but I assume we wouldn't have to go through the same channels as with a copyright piece. If anyone could provide any information and/or links regarding doing this it would be greatly appreciated.
Can you tell us a bit about the situation with Societies that handle copyright management for composers? Do you have experience using them? What is the proper time for a composer to join and how practical is the use of them? I am reviewing some of them in order to find out which suits best my situation. Do you believe international societies are better or I should turn to local? Thanks, Christopher
