The purpose of Tri-M is to inspire music participants, create enthusiasm for scholarship, stimulate desire to render service, and promote leadership in the music students in the school. The NSO is partnering with Tri-M to give them exposure to a professional orchestra and to provide the students with opportunities for playing with the NSO. Forty Tri-M students joined the NSO onstage at one of our concerts in the performance of Tchaikovsky’s War of 1812 Overture. The NSO provides three scholarships each year to Tri-M students.
