Concert Performance Assessment 

Concert Performance Assessment, or CPA, is an opportunity for ensembles from member schools to perform two or three concert selections for adjudication by a panel of judges. Each group is also evaluated on their sight-reading ability. Ensembles are rated on a scale of 1-5, with 1 being the highest rating possible. Ensembles may qualify for the State Concert Festival depending on their rating.
