TRI-M Music Honors Society
The Tri-M Music Honor Society is a NAfME (National Association for Music Education) organization for high school students. At Trumbull High School, we will recognize sophomore, junior and senior music students that demonstrate outstanding musical achievement as well as service and leadership in the music program. Your musical excellence, scholastic achievement, service, and exemplary character will allow you to become part of this prestigious organization.
Originally founded at a school in Illinois in 1936, Tri-M soon developed into an international organization named “Modern Music Master” and was given its present name in 1983 when it became a NAfME program. Tri-M is meant to serve as an organization where students can develop their interest and share their talents with their school and local communities. There are over 3700 chapters worldwide and membership benefits include opportunities in musicianship, service, leadership, and collaboration.
How To Be Involved:
To be involved in the chapter at Trumbull High School, in addition to being an enrolled student in one of the performing ensembles, you must also be either a member of a youth ensemble (e.g. Greater Bridgeport Youth Orchestra, Norwalk Youth Symphony), prepare and audition for Western Region this year, or be recommended by your private music teacher. You must also maintain a B average in your academic classes and a 90% average in your music classes and attend 85% of the scheduled bi-monthly after school meetings. Enclosed you will find a membership application with information you need to provide regarding your musicianship, leadership, service, and involvement in the THS music department. The last step in the process to becoming a member, after having completed the application, agreeing to the guidelines of the chapter, and being approved by the faculty, will be attending an induction ceremony on April 26, 2018 where parents and friends will also be invited.
Please return the enclosed application by September 8, 2017 if you are interested in joining our chapter or continuing your membership.
Our first meeting will be held on Thursday, October 5th with subsequent meetings to be announced. Those interested in applying for an officer position should return their officer application by September 20.
We look forward to another great year of Tri-M here at Trumbull High School!
