Congratulations to Mr. Mayfield for being selected the Tennessee Music Educators Association Outstanding Adminitrator for 2017! Wildcat Pride!!
Here are a few pictures from our awesome visit from SDSU!
Thank you, Dr. Diddle and Dr. Robinette!
By the way, they wanted to leave by 3:00 p.m. and at 3:40 the Statesmen were performing Adoramus Te (same as Chamber performed) beautifully. They got to the second to last chord and….fire alarm!! We had an abrupt end to our visit, but they were so gracious. I suggested they just gather their things and board the buses instead of stand around with us. What a great group!
Don’t forget, today we have the pleasure of hosting South Dakota State University Choirs today! Please be on time and assist with set-up, if necessary. Looking forward to their visit!
