The Big Seven-Oh to My Brothers

Happy Chapter Day to my brothers in the Gamma Theta Chapter of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia--a fine brotherhood of musicians serving the University of North Texas since May 19, 1940.

While the full roster of the chapter since that time includes some people who have made great contributions to the larger world of music (Jimmy Giuffre, Herb Ellis, Bob Dorough, Frank Mantooth), there have been plenty of unsung heroes who have made (or still are making) great contributions in much smaller worlds, but who are still heroes to many. It's a privilege to be an alumnus of such an esteemed group of gentlemen.

May your banner proudly "float for aye" for seventy--no, seven times seventy--more years!
