HOLLADAY -- Several bands from area Catholic schools participated in a musical challenge Tuesday afternoon in Holladay.

About 90 student musicians converged at St. Vincent De Paul Catholic School to learn a piece of music they did not know with students they did not know. After learning it they performed the song for a live audience.

With just a short time to learn their parts, the individual sectionals were then merged into one cohesive band. After a brief rehearsal, the full group performed before parents, teachers and fellow students.
