Leadership skills, decision-making and planning are some of the benefits that members of the High School’s Tri-M Music Honor Society reaped after their largest event of the school year.

The students presented “Suites and Treats” an evening of delicious desserts to go along with their musical selections. The suggested donation for tickets helped to raise funds for the chapter’s goals including the creation of scholarships for graduating seniors in the organization. Dozens of non-perishable food items were also collected that will be donated to the Island Heart Food Pantry in Mount Sinai.

A program of the National Association for Music Education, Shoreham-Wading River’s chapter combines students from the school’s various performing groups – the a capella group, band, jazz band, chorus, orchestra or chamber orchestra, and works to celebrate and promote music education and to give back to the community.

According to Ashley O’Connor, music teacher and chapter advisor, the students have worked diligently all year and built SWR’s chapter from the ground up. She sees the teamwork, dedication and pride of their accomplishments as an extension of their musical achievements.
