“We are a part of the Masquers and APO. Masquers is the theatre departments’s

“You don’t have to be a music major to join this music fraternity. That being said
there are multiple music majors in this fraternity. Our philanthropy for this fraternity is called Mills Music Mission and its where we go out to perform for people who don’t necessarily have music or can receive music. So nursing homes are not technically allowed to receive music so we’ll go and sing for them or play instruments for them. Another philanthropy we have is that we’ll raise money for local music programs around the county. Most of the time, its ones that are not able to receive money. Every little bit of it counts. That’s the biggest thing we’re just trying to spread music all around the country. One of our objectives is to advance music in America and that’s
one of the biggest things that we try to do is advance music.”, said Jonah Martin a Music Education Major and President of Phi Mu Alpha
