Tri-M, Music Honor Society

Modern Music Masters, Tri-M, Music Honor Society was developed to motivate students, recognize their efforts, and honor their accomplishments. It is the purpose of the individual chapters to provide the opportunity to strengthen school music programs, help students reach their full musical potential, encourage instrumental and vocal students to work together toward common goals, and to focus attention on school music programs throughout communities.

Students are selected based on five points of distinction: scholarship, character, cooperation, leadership, and service, as well as musicianship. For more information, please contact club moderator Mrs. Jane Brown at jbrown@thecatholichighschool.org.
