If you want to study music in college, it can be challenging to know where to start. That’s one reason Tri-M, a nationally recognized music honor society, offers a full-day conference each year for Mohonasen’s chapter.
The conference, which was held March 6 at the Center for Advanced Technology, offered a variety of topics centered around music study and careers in music.
This year there were four workshops: an Orff workshop, a theater workshop, a workshop on how to study music in college, and a world percussion workshop. Three of those were presented by Mohonasen alumni.
This year’s guest performer was the band Jocamo, which includes two Mohonasen alum members.
“It’s a very rewarding day for our staff and students,” said Kimberly Kondenar, facilitator of performing arts K-12. “The students are exposed to things that help enhance our curriculum. Students are engaged and physically involved! It also gives practical real-life exposure to careers in music and what it takes to make it!”
