High School Concert Band
The MTCS Concert Band performed for the TMEA State Concert Festival at TSU on April 25th, 2012 and received very positive feedback from the judges. Straight superior ratings at MTSU on March 6th, 2012 resulted in an invitation to State Festival. Only 34 bands from the entire state were accepted! No ratings are assigned in this festival; instead, three nationally-recognized band directors provide comments on each band's performance on stage and then one judge goes with the band into another room to work with the band in a small clinic setting. This is the first year in school history that the High School Band has been invited to the State Festival, and we are very proud of their accomplishment!

On Saturday April 28th, MTCS band students participated in the Solo/Ensemble Festival at Eagleville School.
