Brother Tiswell started this petition to Brothers of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia Fraternity Inc.

The Object of this Fraternity shall be for the development of the best and truest fraternal spirit; the mutual welfare and brotherhood of musical students; the advancement of music in America and a loyalty to the Alma Mater

In keeping with the vast array of American Music, it is requested that the 57th Nation Convention of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia Fraternity of America in St Louis MO (July 21-25, 2021) reflect a larger representation of American Music.  It is the wish of brothers and friends of the fraternity supporting this petition that the genres of music presented at convention be expanded beyond the styles of classical, jazz and choral. Along with diversity in performance, it is asked that a greater emphasis in the areas of music production, entertainment law, and entertainment practices of the at-large field of music be incorporated into the break out sessions. 

For consideration are the following ensembles:

1) Gospel Choir - it is suggested that with the creation of this ensemble that Brother Ruben Studdard be invited to be a featured soloist, as well as a guest director for Honorary Membership.

2) Latin Music ensemble - In reflection that not all American music is in English it is requested that a Spanish ensemble be created.

3) Rock/ Rock&Roll Band (Modern) - a modern style ensemble with music from latter half of the 20th century. A suggested director in Brother Ben Fold.

4) Youth Ensemble - In an effort to Advance music in America it is suggested that an orchestra or band featuring Brothers and local high school students be created. This effort will create a great community event to keep the next generation of musicians or Sinfonians engaged in the arts.
