Biographical / Historical

Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia was established in 1898 by Ossian Everett Mills who was trustee and bursar at the New England Conservatory in Boston. The main objective of this organization was to establish a brotherhood between musical students, advance the role of music in America and ensure loyalty to the Alma Mater. Dayton's chapter of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia was established on May 2, 1969. The goal of this organization was to encourage its members to actively research music in America and make aware the importance of music. Another obligation of this organization was to promote high standards of performance and creativity. Today, this Fraternity at the University of Dayton does various fundraisers and performs in a choir around campus as one brotherhood.
