There are many students who dedicate countless hours to music and when they found out they made Tri-M music honor society, they were ecstatic.
“It’s a huge honor to know that I made it into the National Honor Society for Music,” said Ila Greenawalt, a flutist. “It’s one of my biggest accomplishments. I’ve wanted to be apart of Tri-M since freshman year. I’ve never been more happy or proud of myself.”
Greenawalt is one of the numerous students to make Tri-M, an honor society for musicians and music lovers who go above and beyond in the music field.
To be able to audition for Tri-M, students must complete a long list of tasks. The audition consists of a paper application, an essay about music and its meaning to you, a video of the student playing or singing a challenging piece of music, and a sight reading. That is only after the students have completed years of concert band and other classes with high grades that they can qualify.
The students were eager to find out if they made it, and they finally received an email notifying them of the accomplishment.
As a part of Tri-M, the students get to be a part of many smalls acts of kindness including, Evening of the Arts.
“The stuff they do might seem like they’re barely helping anyone, but all the little things they’re doing help inspire people everyday, and that’s what makes it worth it.” said Greenawalt.
All the students who auditioned worked very hard just like student Kaelei Whitlatch. “I’m almost always at a music rehearsal of some sort, and I’ve had to sacrifice a lot of my time to pursue my hobbies,” she said.
Although Greenawalt and Whitlatch are two different types of performers, both girls believe they speak for everyone who auditioned. Whitlatch said music has changed her life and helped make her “who I am today.”
