It’s 11:20 on a Friday at Holt High School. Senior Evan Edwards makes his way to band class. The future MSU music student is, among other things, getting ready to hear the band play “Abyss,” a song he wrote himself and used as part of his application portfolio. The band will perform “Abyss” at their next concert in May. Edwards and his classmates obviously will receive a grade in their band class.
