Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia

Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia originated at the Boston Conservatory of Music when Ossian Everett Mills formed a little club for men in music. Over 100 years later, it has thrived to become the largest national secret fraternal society in music. Sinfonians in nearly every field of study and professional endeavor have transformed music in America. The opportunity of becoming a Sinfonian is offered to as many men as possible who, through a love for music, can assist in the fulfillment of the Fraternity’s Object and ideals either by adopting music as a profession, or by working to advance the cause of music in America. On the campus of the Pittsburg State University, is the Beta Delta Chapter of Phi Mu Alpha and is one of oldest fraternities on campus. The history of the Beta Delta chapter has included several notable names like Walter McCray, the second chair of the music department and William Brandenburg the first president of Pittsburg State.
