The high school chapter of the Tri-M Music Honor Society students ventured to the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, where they witnessed a performance by the New York Philharmonic.

The students attended a matinee concert that featured standard works by Sergei Rachmaninoff and Jean Sibelius, as well as a modern composition by Louis Andriessen. This was a first-time visit to the center and seeing a performance by a professional orchestra for many of the students. 

Founded in 1842, the New York Philharmonic is one of the oldest musical institutions in the United States and is considered one of today’s leading American orchestral groups.

Tri-M Music Honor Society is a national honor society that recognizes students for their academic and musical achievements. This is the first year for the East Rockaway High School Chapter, which currently has 15 members.
