Music Honor Society Launched at Binghamton High School
The Tri-M® Music Honor Society, the honor society for secondary school music students, announces the chartering of a new chapter at BHS under the leadership of Elizabeth Bartlett. 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, nearly 7,500 Tri-M chapters have been chartered in the United States and abroad, and current membership exceeds 75,000. The goal of the Tri-M Music Honor Society is to foster greater interest in band, orchestra, and choral 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.
