West Orange High School Tri-M Music Honor Society Inducts New Members

WEST ORANGE, NJ - The Tri-M (Music Modern Masters) Honor Society at West Orange High School welcomed 25 new members to its ranks in a ceremony held in the Library Media Center on Nov. 16.   

"We are very proud of the students in the Tri-M Music Honors Society and all of the students who participate in the many performing groups available to them at WOHS: Concert Choir, Honors Chamber Choir, Glee Choir, Jubilee Choir, Tenor and Bass Choir, Treble Choir, Concert Band, Marching Band, Color Guard, Jazz Band, Percussion Ensemble, Wind Ensemble, String Orchestra, Royal Strings, Spring Musical, Dance, Step Teams, and more," said Tri-M Advisor John Hellyer. 
 
Tri-M encompasses the philanthropic and citizenship aspects of being a good performer. The students support their department and each other by volunteering for service at music and theatre events. Requirements for acceptance into Tri-M include A's in a student’s music/arts/dance class, A's and B's in other classes, and a recommendation from their teacher. In addition, students must complete eight hours of community service to the music department. Students receive a certificate and Tri-M pin upon their induction, and seniors will receive a pink cord to wear at graduation in June.
