    Default April Madness - Round 2, Brackets A&D

    Welcome to round 2 of our April Madness tournament. We started with a list of 64 composers and have narrowed it down to 32. In order to speed things up a bit I have consolidated brackets A and D together in this thread (the winner of these brackets will face off in the Final Four round of the tournament). As before, voting will be open for 48 hours. I will post brackets B and C together in another thread Saturday afternoon my time. Round 2 should be complete by Monday 4/12.

    Here are the basic rules for voting:

    1. Add 2 points to your favorite composer in each match up on the board. If you have no preference add 1 point to both (do NOT refrain from voting in any match up just because you don't like either composer or don't have a preference).

    2. Each voting thread will last 48 hours after the initial board is posted. Every participant may vote 1 time per their day, up to a maximum of 2 times in any bracket.

    3. I will hold off on voting on the 2nd day until the very end to break any ties/prevent any new ties.

    Voting for this Round/Bracket will end in 48 hours at approximately 12:00 PM (noon) US Central Time on 4/11.
