Once again, the Lynbrook High School Tri-M Music Honor Society pulled out all the stops to present its 13th annual Cabaret Night. What started as an intimate coffee house more than a decade ago has become one of the most popular community events of the spring season. With creative lighting and colorful tablecloths, students transformed the school cafeteria into a cozy cabaret lounge, showcasing the musical talents of dozens of high school students. Proceeds from the event, which took place on Jan. 31, were donated to the food pantries at St. Raymond’s Church in East Rockaway and Our Lady of Peace Church in Lynbrook. Each pantry received $750.
     
      Tri-M President James Reilly was the emcee for the evening, introducing each of the 20 acts with a personal note. The performers dazzled friends and family with two complete acts of musical performances that represented a broad range of talent and tastes, including ballads, show tunes, classical instrumentals, and even some original compositions. The high school brass ensemble provided musical interludes between acts. This event, which is organized and planned each year entirely by Tri-M members, gives high school students the opportunity to show off a more personal side of their musical talents.

      The Lynbrook Tri-M chapter is a service organization designed to recognize students for their academic and musical achievements, reward them for their accomplishments and service activities, and to inspire other students to excel at music and leadership. Students are carefully selected for this international music honor society on the basis of scholarship, character, leadership and service. Throughout the year, Tri-M members perform at senior citizen centers, raise funds for charity and Tri-M scholarships, and usher at district-wide school concerts. They also extend themselves as music tutors to students in the middle and elementary schools in preparation for the New York State School Music Association solo evaluation festivals, and assist at the NYSSMA Festival itself. Cabaret Night is the organization’s biggest fundraising event of the year. Students work under the guidance of Tri-M advisor Alyssa White.
