CROSS RIVER, N.Y. -- John Jay High School students have launched a chapter of the Tri-M Music Honor Society.
The new chapter is an international music honor society designed to recognize students for their academic and musical achievements, reward them for their accomplishments and service activities, and inspire other students to excel at music and leadership.
The founding members of Tri-M atJohn Jay have encouraged their peers involved in music to join, in addition to hosting meetings and planning events for the society’s inaugural year.
Tri-M members are looking to organize chamber ensemble performances in the community, teach and inspire young musicians at the elementary and middle schools, assist at this year’s New York State School Music Association festival (which will be held at John Jay Middle School), organize student recitals and take a trip to see the New York Philharmonic.
Updates about the Tri-M Music Honor Society may be found on the group’s website.
