MONTVILLE, NJ – The Montville Township High School Music Program put on a brief concert for the residents of The Chelsea at Montville in April, proceeding with their mission as a chapter of the nationwide Tri-M Music Honor Society to “spread music in the community.”

“We came to The Chelsea to get our Tri-M presence known throughout the community and all of the musicians simply wanted to perform and put out their best for an audience. It was a great experience,” Tri-M Student President and flutist Vicki Iasso said.

The “mini-concert” featured a series of small, largely student-maintained ensembles. The performances included:

“I think it went pretty well, great first-time visit to The Chelsea," MTHS Orchestra director and Tri-M advisor Andrew Havington said. "It allowed the students to read a new audience. I truly hope it made the residents happy.”

The Montville Township High School student musicians, led by Havington, plan on visiting The Chelsea again in the future.
