While we manage our community's response to a world pandemic, reckon both together and as individuals with American history, and work to make the present and the future better, our school lives are speculative.
At this time, we cannot say when or how the arts at USN will continue during the 2020-2021 school year. We can say that we will find a way, as our community found their "make it work" moments at the end of the past school year.
The upcoming year would typically open with a save the date note for arts patrons for all the events scheduled throughout the year: the Middle School musical, Student Theater Guild Scene Night, the High School musical, the MS & HS Band Concert, Jazz Band, and the Dance Showcase, just to start.
Tiger Arts Patrons will do all we can to foster opportunities for our arts students to showcase their talents. Art is meant to be shared, and we want to help our students share in a responsible manner.
TAP will continue to focus on the arts at USN, to provide a community for our visual and performing arts students and their supporters. TAP patrons help to sustain and enhance arts programming through their support. TAP contributes additional funding to the arts at USN, while providing supporters with free admission to events. Our community will find strength by remaining rooted in gratitude for all that we have, all that we can share, and all that we have yet to accomplish.
"The arts, it has been said, cannot change the world, but they may change human beings who might change the world.”
TAP, one of USN’s great booster clubs, focuses on the arts at USN. It provides a community for our visual and performing arts students and their supporters. This support helps to sustain and enhance exciting arts programming.
TAP contributes additional funding to the arts while providing supporters with free admission to events (excepting Theater Guild Performances) including off-campus events.
Membership is open to anyone interested in supporting the arts at USN. This includes grandparents and others in the greater Nashville community. You may purchase a TAP membership for $75
. Your annual fee includes TAP membership for all immediate family members living in your household.
