High School Students Share the Gift of Music

Members of the High School Tri-M Music Honor Society visited the Long Island State Veterans Home in Stony Brook and the Little Flower School in Wading River to spread cheer and perform music for the residents and students.

The student-musicians had the opportunity to interact with the residents at the Veterans Home and learn about their lives and service. At the Little Flower School, all the students collaborated and learned how to perform a song on handbells.

A program of the National Association for Music Education, which focuses on creating future leaders in music education and music advocacy, Tri-M is the only national honor society for student musicians in secondary schools.

According to Ashley O’Connor, music teacher and chapter advisor, SWR chapter’s goal is to inspire and recognize musical achievement in the school music department.
