Message From the President: I started the music honor society in the 2023-24 school year. Music is a passion of mine and I enjoy sharing the joys, complexities, and challenges behind it. Students in this honor society have demonstrated commitment, focus, and fun. I witnessed musicians become closer to each other as a result of creating this honor society. My leadership team and I hope you have an enriching experience and consider music as an art of expression, passion, or fun. Please take a look at some photos around this page to learn more about our recent activities in the 2023-24 school year! - Carissa Lu
