A number Williamson County Schools music students in grades 7 through 12, proving they are among Tennessee’s best, have been picked for seats on the Middle Tennessee School Band and Orchestra Association’s (MTSBOA) Mid-State and All-State bands and orchestras.

All students listed below qualified for Mid-State honors. The top students from Gold Band and Orchestra were then chosen to attend the Tennessee All-State event in April.
