The Tri-M Music Honor Society hosted their yearly guest artist. The students are given the opportunity to meet music professionals from the industry, ask questions, and experience various performances. This year’s guest artist was Mark Thrasher. Mark is a low reed doubler currently performing in the pit orchestra in Aladdin on Broadway. He has been an active pit musician for over 20 years playing in countless shows. Mark brought his entire set up from the show and performed along with the cast recording so the students could see what goes in to being a woodwind doubler. To say we were all impressed would be an understatement. Mark also invited any student to come to a show for a tour in the future!
