The <part-group> element
Parent element: <part-list>
The <part-group> element indicates groupings of parts in the score, usually indicated by braces and brackets. Braces that are used for multi-staff parts should be defined in the <attributes> element for that part. The <part-group> start element appears before the first <score-part> in the group. The <part-group> stop element appears after the last <score-part> in the group.
As with parts, a <part-group> can have a name and abbreviation. Values for the child elements are ignored at the stop of a <part-group>.
A <part-group> element is not needed for a single multi-staff part. By default, multi-staff parts include a brace symbol and (if appropriate given the <bar-style>) common barlines. The symbol formatting for a multi-staff part can be more fully specified using the <part-symbol> element.
