Cornerstone Christian Academy Band is under the direction of Mr. Jimmy Hobbs.
They recently participated in the Alabama State Musical Performance Assessment competition. The band members prepared three pieces to showcase their musical abilities while at MPA. This year Mr. Hobbs selected March of the Belgian Paratroopers, by Pierre Leemans, Appalachian Air, arr. By Michael Brown, and Discovery 1492, by Robert W. Smith, for the competition. The band traveled to Gadsden City High School to compete on February 21, and were awarded all Superior ratings for the third straight year! MPA judges in many different areas, such as the execution of the selected pieces, playing in tune and playing with right balance. Plus the band has sight-read a piece of music. Congratulations to the concert band and good luck on preparing for your spring concert.
