Villa Maria’s chapter of the Tri-M Music Honor Society inducted 19 new members into the society at a ceremony on November 5, 2015. Music, of course, was a key part of the ceremony. The orchestra performed Marche Militaire Francaise in honor of Sr. Rose Anthony, and the Madrigals sang Ave Maria. Officers read passages explaining the nature and function of the society, and presented the new members, who came forward to receive their pins. Continuing members were also recognized.
Angela Falco, VMA ’76, was the guest speaker for the evening. Ms. Falco is a composer, pianist, flutist, music therapist, music instructor, author and adjunct professor at Rosemont College. She spoke to the students about music and mentors, and performed her composition Deep in My Heart.
The evening closed with a few words from principal Sr. Regina Ryan, and singing of the school song.
