Paul Worosello’s Message to the General Assembly
Phi Beta Mu embodies three ideals. One is to honor superior achievement. Our fraternity has done a great job over the years with recognition of outstanding directors and contributors. The International and many state Hall of Fame committees acknowledge the contributions of those who have gone before us, whose demand for excellence has created the musical environment we enjoy today.
Secondly, the value of moral integrity can never be overstated. Thomas Jefferson said, “In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.” Phi Beta Mu continues to embrace those ideals that allow us to become the greatest people we can be, and, more importantly, models by example for our students, who themselves are searching for the foundation upon which they can build their lives.

Phi Beta Mu premieres Homage to the Dream
Phi Beta Mu International spearheaded a consortium of member chapters across the country to commission a work in honor of the 75th anniversary of Phi Beta Mu.
Composer Mark Camphouse was chosen and the piece, entitled Homage to the Dream, was premiered at the annual clinic/convention of the Texas Bandmasters Convention held in San Antonio, TX on July 21, 2013.
The ideals of our fraternity are reflected in the special projects that local chapters focus their time and energy on each year. See what Tau chapter (West Virginia) is doing to promote quality wind music and the building of better bands.
Special projects chair Dwayne Sagen will be soliciting information regarding chapter special projects in the upcoming months. 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.
