Become a Member
Membership in Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia is open to any male student, faculty, or staff member of a sheltering institution provided that he is 18 years of age or older, and, 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. Sinfonia seeks to offer membership to as many men as possible regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, disability, or religion.
If you wish to join Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia, you should directly contact a local chapter, or contact the National Headquarters where the National Staff can help put you in contact with the appropriate people to help you reach this attainment.
Currently, our chapter of Phi Mu Alpha operates on the following schedule:
Fall Semester is a semester of Rushing. Throughout the Fall semester, we host several Rush Functions so that potential new members can get to know us, as well as those who may become a part of the same pledge class. Beginning in the Spring semester, we hand out bids. Those who have shown the most interest and desire to become a part of our fraternity are chosen to take part in our pledge process.
Do I need to have a Music Major or Minor in order to Join Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia?
Absolutely not! We do not limit our fraternal experience to only those who study the field of Music. Anyone with any major may pledge themselves to Phi Mu Alpha. We are a fraternity of Music, thus the only requirement is the desire to spread the joy of Music through out the world so that others may be truly moved by the experiences that we give them through performance and serenade--or Music in any other form!
What to expect at our Rush Functions:
Our Rush Functions are designed to be laid back and relaxed so that newcomers do not feel pressured to meet the Chapter as well as others who've shown interest in Phi Mu Alpha for the first time. We strive to provide an environment where everyone can fit in, so that everyone can experience a true sense of brotherhood and family, regardless of our differences.
