Brockport High School launched a new chapter of the Tri-M Music Honor Society, an honor society for secondary school music students that focuses on building leaders and music advocates.
The Brockport Tri-M Music Honor Society was formed under the leadership of music teachers Kristen Swift and Victoria Valente.
The formation of this chapter signifies the school’s recognition of the importance of the arts in the development of a comprehensive educational program.
The Tri-M Music Honor Society provides a means of recognizing the efforts and achievements of music students who volunteer their time and share their musical talent with others.
Since 1952, almost 5,000 Tri-M chapters have been chartered in the United States and abroad, and current membership exceeds 50,000. The goal of the Tri-M Music Honor Society is to foster greater interest in musical performance and to provide more opportunities for personal musical expression.
Students are selected for membership in the honor society on the basis of musicianship, scholarship, character, leadership and service to their school and community. The organization’s high standards serve to challenge students to greater effort and achievement and to encourage them in the pursuit of excellence.
Thirty-nine Brockport High School music students from various ensembles and classes were inducted into the Tri-M Music Honor Society Chapter 7410 during a ceremony at Brockport High School on March 22.
