    If you're thinking of marching with a soprano, I would talk to your band director. You don't see many soprano saxophones in high school band. I think this may be partly due to large clarinet sections. The soprano has regained popularity (I guess Kenny G is good for something) and you're seeing more soprano saxophones even in the high school bands. I know a couple students who play soprano in high school bands. They're reading clarinet music.

      but what if the clarinet part goes low A or lower? It wouldn't sound right on the soprano since it has a reedier sound than the clarinet in the notes from middle C# to around low E, Eb, or D
