1/9 - Yearbook Pictures

The annual Winter Concert is on December 12 at 7:00pm. Come support if you're not performing!

A social with Gabrielino's Tri M will be on December 21. This event is MANDATORY, especially because our club looks low in numbers compared to them.

Lanyards are, again, navy blue with white print and will cost $2.

To receive a Tri M membership pin, you must meet the following criteria:
- attend meetings (cannot miss two or three meetings)

Dedicated seniors will receive honor chords.

We have drawn names for SMM (secret music masters!) so have fun in gift giving!

Meeting Days Change

Hello everyone,
hoped you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving, Meeting will now be held on Fridays (I hope that's good for everyone) at the canteen as always, at 3:10pm Officers are to show up at 3:00pm so we may do an over view of what we will be talking about during the meeting.

Lanyards will now be navy blue (because they dont have maroon) and will cost everyone about $2 or less (*gasp*) white font saying "Tri - M Music Honor Society" (unless someone has another idea of what else to put on it)
Sweaters/ Jackets (what ever you guys would like to call it) the zip ups will cost around $20 most likely no more than $25 check back for the exact price, please check back for prices so we don't have to wait yet another week without our Sweaters/ Jackets. So everyone can pay by the next meeting.

I just recently spoke with the President of Gabrielino's Tri - M, a possible date for the social with them will be on Dec. 14 and Dec. 21, details on that will be announced and posted on the site.

Thank you for checking the site =]

A social with Gabrielino High School's Tri-M is TBA.

That is all!

Next meeting will be on 11/25/08 at about 3:30pm.
See you then!

Wednesday, November 12, 2008


Thank you for those of you who check the forum daily, if you leave comments and you let us know who you are in them, you might even get something special, who knows.... haha....

well an important reminder is the sweater designs!!! if you have a sweater design, please turn them in to either John Chang or I, Albert Lu by this Friday. It must be on white computer paper. If nobody turns one in, i guess were going to go with my design which is basically the 3 M's (look at the blogs banner on top) in the back, and the Tri - M senior chapter emblem on the chest on the left and ur name. the only thing u guys would have a say in would be the color of the sweater. (it would be nice if it were a color we could wear in concert attire, black and white.) the club color is maroon

also, tell people about the blog site, remind people to go on the blog site. if you have questions, suggestions, comments feel free to email our president John Chang at or you can email me with my personal email
you may leave comments in the blog, even if its just a video of a music performance you want others to listen too or discuss (ex. DCI, orchestra, concert bands, jazz/ swing music)

Next meeting will be Tuesday, November 18, 2008
Thank you
