They pro- vided music for the show with their Wind Ensemble and stage band. Barbershop songs, as well as popular songs, were crooned by the Phi Mu Alpha Glee Club at the an- nual all girls ' dormitory serenade. The club gathered at every female dorm on campus to honor the girls with songs.They also sang for Presi- dent Grover Murray during th e i r tour. For these activities and devotion to music, the Tech chapter of Phi Mu Alpha was named " Outstanding Chap- ter " at the province convention dur- ing the fall. The workshop held in Lubbock hosted chapters from E a s t- ern New Mexico and West Texas. Tom Bennett served a s presi- dent of Phi Mu Alpha. Other officers were: Robert Mayes, vice-president; Gary Garrison, recording sec- retary; Mark Crouch, corresponding secretary; Ricky Vaughn, treasurer; Ken Holze, warden; and Rick Colvin, pledge trainer.

I J» Much concentration and the beat goes on. Paul Ellsworth directs the orchestra In rehearsal. ORCHESTRA t v;;; H Swingin ' Symphony Any selection from the grandeur of Beethoven and Bach to the spice of Lil ' Abner was in the 1967-68 rep- ertoire of the Texas Tech Symphony Orchestra. The 75 member group is con- ducted by Paul Ellsworth, who gradu- ated from Columbia University and studied at Northwestern University, American Conservatory of Chicago and Hillsdale College. Under such able direction, the Tech Orchestra served the school with five concerts, including an opera, available to the student body without charge. Total attendance for the year, including the tour audiences, was about 6,000. On its tours, the orchestra repre- sented the cultural aspects of Texas Tech through the performance of the great musical literature available to the symphony orchestra. During the year, the orchestra also played in concerts for public schools in the Lubbock and surround- ing areas. These performances were part of its recruiting program. The Tech Orchestra was selected to represent all college orchestras at the Texas Music Education Associa- tion Convention in February in Aus- tin. After its appearances at concerts in San Antonio, the orchestra was in- vited to appear as an official unit for Texas Tech at the Hemisf air next spring. Tyme 17

Penn MU PHI EPSILON The Singing Sisters " Music is our business . . . our only business! " This could well be the motto of Mu Phi Epsilon, international pro- fessional music sorority for music majors, minors, and music specializa- tion students. Membership requires second se- mester freshman standing with a 2.5 overall average and 3.0 in music. Since its campus founding in 1952, Mu Phi Epsilon ' s main business has been service to the Tech department of music. Led this year by President Sylvia Curry, the sorority has had many and varied activities. Ushering at all stu- dent and faculty recitals sponsored by the music department was one of the club ' s regular services. They also helped at Tech Choir and Symphony concerts throughout the year. During the fail, the members spon- sored an All Women Music Major reception to introduce new students to Mu Phi Epsilon. In the spring, a piano concert and tea was held for all eligible and interested freshman girls. In December, the campus echoed with the silvery sounds of Christmas music as the members of Mu Phi Epsi- lon sang in the Torch Light Parade ceremony at the annual Carol of Lights. An original project of Mu Phi ' s has been to hold wedding music clinics to experiment and introduce proper music for that special ceremony. A mock ceremony and reception was staged using the appropriate musical selections. In the spring an exchange recital was held with West Texas State. Tech ' s Epsilon Phi chapter traveled to Canyon and conducted a student recital. In return, Tech was hostess to a West Texas student recital in Lubbock. Mu Phi was also hostess for the Biannual International Convention held in Dallas in August. Other officers besides Miss Curry were Gailyn Seljos, vice-president; Janice King, recording secretary; Bar- bara Dix, corresponding secretary; Janet Holmes, treasurer; and Nancy Wilson, Chorister.
