On Thursday, April 16, the Ambridge chapter of the Tri-M Music Honor Society had a ceremony to induct new members. The coordinator of this chapter is Mrs. Marie Dewar. Current members were also honored at the ceremony. These members are Valentina Powell (President), Veronica Ammer (Vice President), Arthur Ammon (Secretary), Nathan Wagner (Treasurer), Josh Bosh (Historian), Robert Jarsulic (New Member/Recital Coordinator) and Maria Pane (Public Relations).

            Eighteen new members were inducted into Tri-M. New seniors included Aislinn Airhart, Lisa Huff, Kathleen Mallard, Joshua Shoup, Katrina Stanley, Abby Weaver, Noah Welter, Elizabeth Wisniewski, and Julia Young. The new junior members are Rachael Allen, Jordan Escamilla, Carrie Freed, Maddie Genre, Emily Hicks, Ryan Malatesta, Erynne Schoeneweis, Jason Shaffer and Emily Zbrzezny.

            To qualify for this honor, students must be involved in at least two music ensembles, as well as have a certain grade point average and good character and leadership. Once an individual meets all these qualifications, they must perform a piece of music at the ceremony. This can be solo or in a group and can be anything from singing to playing an instrument or both. Mrs. Dewar stated, “This is one of my favorite performances of the year because the students can choose to do anything. Someone wrote a song, another wrote an arrangement and there are many genres. It is a very enjoyable performance to watch.” Four returning members also performed.

            After the performances, the officers presented the three m’s of Tri-M: Modern Music Masters and explained what it means to be a member of the Tri-M Music Honor Society. Then the new and old members said an oath to seal their membership and the new members were given pins and membership cards. “I feel honored to be a part of such a prestigious society,” senior, Lisa Huff explained.

            Overall the ceremony went very well. It was a night for parents and guests to celebrate and enjoy each member’s musical talents. Congratulations to all new and returning members of the Tri-M Music Honor Society!
