About Tri-M

Tri-M Music Honor SocietyThe Tri-M Music Honor Society is a National Association for Music Education (NAfME) 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.

NAfME logoOriginally 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 3,700 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. Below 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, were inducted virtually on April 23, 2020.
