To the COTA Board,
Thank you for the opportunity to play at the COTA Festival! It was a great experience. It was very helpful to get to work with all of the clinicians. i learned a lot this year in the COTA Cats, but most importantly I got some experience playing in a big band setting, a skill I have been lacking. I'd also like to thank Phil Woods for playing with the COTA Cats, it was an honor to play beside him. The Festival was a great experience (and has been for two years now), and I hope to be a part of it for my remaining two years of high school.
