Future Commission Projects

In keeping with the Phi Beta Mu mission of building better bands, it is the intent of our executive board that we to continue to contribute to the repertoire of the wind band through commissions of new music at all grade levels. To that end, we are developing proposals for our 2015 commission of a Grade II work for wind band.

While this work will reflect understanding of the limitations of this grade level, the piece will be crafted with numerous teaching opportunities that allow for interesting part writing for all performers.

All members are encouraged to submit proposals or recommendations of composers for consideration. These recommendations may be submitted to Elva Kaye Lance <>, or any member of the Executive Board prior to the 2015 Annual Board Meeting at the Midwest Clinic.

Chapter Profiles

We want to know more about you!

Public relations chair Keith Rudolph is soliciting information in order to expand our awareness of each of our 35 chapters. Even though we have much in common, each of our Phi Beta Mu chapters is unique. By sharing this information we become more connected as a fraternity and the bonds of life, love and music are strengthened.

For more information about this project contact Keith Rudolph at <>.

Special Projects

The ideals of our fraternity are reflected in the special projects that local chapters focus their time and energy on each year. See what Omicron Chapter (Arkansas) is doing to promote quality wind music and the building of better bands.


Mu Alpha Dominica Project
As of April 2014 members of the Mu Alpha team have initiated band programs in 15 secondary schools in the Island Dominion of Dominica.

With the support of major donors The Bandstand and The Wind Shoppe, over 600 instruments have been supplied and shipped to Dominica for use in the programs. More ⇒

Special projects chair Dwayne Sagen is always interested in receiving information regarding chapter special projects. Please take time to share the goals and projects that your chapter has embarked upon this year. An idea shared can inspire and motivate action and has the potential to impact our profession in a positive way.
