Modern Music Masters
As of last night, Joshua is a proud member of this music honors society for high school students.
Sixteen students and their parents, grandparents and friends gathered in the Oakton High School lecture hall for an evening of music and fellowship. The program began with a recital of solo and ensemble selections performed by all of the inductees. The audience was treated to a feast of woodwind, brass, vocal, piano and harp solos and a brass quintet. The recital was followed by the induction of these students into Tri-M, and the induction was followed by a reception.
Tri-M membership requirements include musical achievement, scholastic achievement, demonstration of good character and assumption of leadership responsibilities. Over the past several years, Joshua and the other inductees have blossomed in all of these areas. I looked proudly upon sixteen teenagers who are good citizens of their school and community. I was pleased for them and I was impressed, yet again, by their displays of musical talent. More importantly, I was impressed, yet again, by their humility and grace. It's a privilege to know these students and their parents, and it was a privilege to celebrate with them and share their joy last night.
Congratulations to all of the new Modern Music Masters.
