Tri-M Music Honor Society

Capistrano Unified School District families,

Mark your calendars for Saturday, February 8th!

This year, Tesoro’s Tri-M chapter is pioneering an all-new Solo and Ensemble Festival and Showcase! As a music honor society, our goal is to enrich musicians’ solo and ensemble performance skills. In addition, we hope to help further integrate the students of Capistrano Unified School District into the musical family.

The festival component consists of each group or soloist performing for an adjudicator. Each group will receive a score based on their performance. Later that day, the top-scoring musicians will be invited to perform at the showcase component for all the district families.

This event is open to all CUSD students in grades K-12 enrolled in a school music program. Online registration is open from October 5th to December 5th. Late registration will be accepted until December 10th with an increased registration fee.

Following December 10th, each group will be assigned an audition slot between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., sent via email and will be posted on the TesoroIM website. The Festival and Showcase will be held at Tesoro High School on February 8th, including the showcase concert at 7:00 p.m.

Each performance must fit under one of the following categories:

  • String solo (optional piano accompaniment)
  • Band solo (optional piano accompaniment)
  • Piano solo (NO accompaniment)
  • Small ensemble (one piano allowed, no player limit)

Solos with an ensemble accompaniment are considered in the small ensemble category, not the solo category. Participants are allowed multiple entries in different categories.

DO NOT miss this amazing opportunity to grow as a performer and showcase CUSD’s musical talents. We hope to see you at our first Solo and Ensemble Festival and Showcase this year!
