WHS’ Tri-M music honor society will host a benefit concert on Feb. 12, 2018. The concert will feature several professional musicians currently playing with the Boston Symphony Orchestra in addition to WHS’ Tri-M musicians.

The society is raising money for the National Association for Music Education’s Give-a-Note Foundation. According to its website, the foundation strives to bring awareness to the importance of music education and to strengthen musical opportunities for all students, providing the resources necessary to help 20 million students through grants to new and existing school programs.

The concert will last one hour and will begin at 7 p.m. in the WHS auditorium. There is a suggested donation of $10 for adults and $5 for students and seniors, but the concert is free to attend.
