About Our Club
Tri-M/Forte is a volunteer club that focuses on giving back to the community through our passion for music. This year, join us to play in virtual performances, teach younger music students, take part in interactive socials, and more!
We will be hosting general meetings on the 1st Tuesday of every month at lunch (12pm).
