    However what about the poor composers of the music.  Shouldn't they get

    I think that most composers are glad when sheet music has their name attached 
    to it. At least the recognition is seen by the band. That is all that's 
    required unless someone wishes to record it. That, however, is another issue. 
    I devise dances and compose dance music myself and don't feel any need to 
    include my name in a program. The MC may choose to mention it but it is not 
    required. It would also depend on whether the person made a living writting 
    and performing music. Acknowledgement might be more important in that case.
