Students to participate in band, orchestra honor ensembles
USN High School students successfully auditioned for Mid-State and will rehearse with peers this month.

Several USN High School students headed out to Antioch in December to audition for Mid-State, a yearly event sponsored by Middle Tennessee School Band and Orchestra Association. It provides an opportunity for the best musicians of Middle Tennessee to perform with one another in large ensembles. All students auditioned successfully, and two received scores high enough to be selected for All-State weekend, to be held in April.
We are proud of all of these students, who will venture out to Murfreesboro this weekend and next to meet other local instrumentalists and rehearse and perform under the direction of respected visiting conductors. Of particular note for Tiger pride, Sheeline Yu ’21 has been named first chair violin (concertmaster) of the 9/10 Orchestra.
Share your Tiger pride by purchasing a stadium seat and joining the Tiger Club. Our athletic booster club helps pay for upgrades to our athletic facilities, coordinates concessions sales, and sponsors our sports recognition evenings.
The fitness center will operate summer hours Wednesday, May 29 through Friday, Aug. 2 and be open 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays. Student-athletes are welcome to work out at school, except during TSSAA Dead Period, Sunday, June 23 through Saturday, July 6.
