Chapter Special Projects
It is exciting to see the themes of mentorship, collaboration and leadership demonstrated by the actions of Phi Beta Mu members and chapters. The ideals of our fraternity are reflected in the special projects that local chapters focus their time and energy on each year. We are thrilled by the response we had from you in 2014!
Discover the common threads of service to our profession that bind our chapters and fraternity together.
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 <http://www.privatedaddy.com/?q=OVN-2FJFl5YztoYV5qZ1EiJWNNWRVVVXMzMklkVmUy_360>, or any member of the Executive Board prior to the 2015 Annual Board Meeting at the Midwest Clinic.
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 <http://www.privatedaddy.com/?q=O1NhKEJpbxhLaV9na1kiK39TZFZlMg-3D-3D_360>.
