HOLLADAY, Utah-- Local Catholic school bands gathered at St. Vincent de Paul Catholic School in Holladay on Thursday for the fifth annual "Band Festival."

About 185 kids from seven schools took part and each school played two songs.  At the end, all the bands played one piece together.

Organizers hope the event encourages students to continue playing and studying music into high school and college.
