Black Cat Music education and performance equipment will be on show later this month at the Music Masters’ and Mistresses’ Association’s annual conference. A range of products, including music stands and staging equipment, will be displayed and staff will be on hand to discuss and demonstrate products. Copies of Black Cat Music’s new comprehensive price list and catalogue will be available from the stand.

According to the MMA, ‘The 2007 Conference (11-13 May) at Bedford has Composition as a main theme (Bedford is one of the few schools now to have a composer-in-residence) and marks the 60th birthday year of the composer Paul Patterson (a former composer-in-residence at Bedford). Building a Music School (Bedford's new £3.1 million building was opened by Sir Peter Maxwell Davies in March 2006) and the demands of Higher Education are also on the agenda.’
