UD music fraternity receives regional and national awards
9:10 a.m., March 19, 2013--The Xi Mu Chapter of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia, a music fraternity at the University of Delaware, received the most outstanding chapter award at the annual Province Workshop in February.
The chapter also received the Charles E. Lutton Province Merit Award at the 2012 Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia National Convention in Orlando, Fla., last year.
Outstanding student teachers
The Xi Mu Chapter is part of Province 27, which includes chapters of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia at Morgan State University, Howard University, Shepherd University, George Mason University and Shenandoah Conservatory.
This year marks the fourth consecutive year that the Xi Mu Chapter has earned the “Most Outstanding Chapter” award in Province 27.
The Charles E. Lutton Province Merit Award recognizes the chapter in each province that earns the most citations in a three-year period. Citations represent standards of excellence in seven categories, which include musical achievement, fraternal tradition, membership development, province interaction, chapter operations, special projects and Alumni Eelations.
“I know I speak for the entire chapter when I say how honored we are to receive these two distinct awards,” says Matthew Wiltshire, president of the Xi Mu Chapter. “We work very hard to advance the cause of music.”
