Students to participate in band, orchestra honor ensembles

USN High School students successfully auditioned for Mid-State and will rehearse with peers this month.
by Katie Greenebaum, English teacher and Chamber Ensemble director
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.
Participants include:
Silver Band: Trevor Zou ’20, euphonium
Gold Band: Gracie Li, ’21, bassoon
9/10 Orchestra: Sheeline Yu ’21, violin (All-State)
11/12 Orchestra: Amanda Ding ’19, cello (All-State); Jason Kuchtey ’20, violin
Congratulate them if you see them.
    • Sheeline Yu '21, Amanda Ding '19, Trevor Zou '20 and Gracie Li '21.

    • Jason Kuchtey ’20
