Nicholas Moose, a senior at Lincoln County High School, was recently afforded the opportunity to perform with approximately 250 students from across Middle Tennessee on the stage of the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.

Students selected were members of the Middle Tennessee Mid-State Choirs.

Recently, the selected students met in Nashville for a rehearsal and on Sunday, Nov. 26, they met again and rehearsed with the Nashville Pops Orchestra and the legendary Lee Greenwood. The concert was held that evening.

“I have to say it was fantastic,” Moose said of the experience. “I met some nice people there. The entire experience was exciting. It’s definitely been a highlight of my senior year.

“I’m just glad I got to do this,” he added. “It was a once-in-a-lifetime deal, and I won’t forget it. Thanks to Mr. Petty for the support.”
