Some things to remember when preparing for the SC Concert Performance Assessment :

  • Director’s must choose both pieces from a graded list.  See the Graded Lists page linked here.
  • If you wish to choose all of your music from selections not on the lists, you must fill out an CPA Application for Music found in the forms section of the SCMEA site. This form must be filled out and sent to Helen Tipton (see above for address).
