Edition United States is my second country in this series. First, we will select and vote on composers. Second, we will select and vote on compositions. For each of the two categories, the top ten will then be available for additional national/regional games.

Composer Selection Rules:

1. You may vote once daily.

2. When you vote, you will have up to 5 composers to select.

3. Composers known primarily as jazz musicians or film composers are not allowed. However, concert works by these artists will be allowed when we select compositions.

3. Voting will end when participation significantly recedes.

My 5 selections for today:

Copland
Creston
Diamond
Piston
Schuman, W.

Welcome to Round One of our United Staates Composer Game. After collecting 150 composers, the break-down is 5 rounds, each having 30 composers; for each round, the 5 having the highest scores will advance to the Finals.

Rules of the Road:

1. You may vote once daily.

2. When you vote, you will have 10 points to distribute as you wish except that no composer may receive more than 6 points.

3. The Half-Time Adjustment is in play. With the first composer to garner 50 points, the 12 with the lowest scores will be eliminated from the game; this number could rise if there are ties toward the bottom of the board.

4. Round One ends with the first composer to reach 100 points.
