There was a time when Central Academy of Technology and Arts (CATA) senior Sam Jackson considered going to a traditional college or university. So he spent a few days with a friend who was enrolled at a nearby university to get a feel of what college life could be like.
This past month, the CATA band had the pleasure to perform for a panel of judges at a Musical Performance Adjudication, or MPA as we call it. Although the performance was only one day, the amount of preparation we put into it was much, much more. The students have been practicing the music every day since the beginning of the semester. Some days we would stay after school to practice the music just so we could hear what it sounds like as a full band.
