SWOSU's Phi Mu Alpha to Present Program at Jim Thorpe Center


Members of the Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia music fraternity at Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford will present a program of music to patients of the Jim Thorpe Rehabilitation Center in Oklahoma City this Sunday, February 12.

The SWOSU students are presenting the program as part of the fraternity’s national observance of the 150th birthday of the organization’s founder, Ossian Everett Mills. During the week of February 11-18, over 200 chapters across the nation are performing similar projects.

Chapter President Eric Pennello said the music program will be held at 2 p.m. at the Jim Thorpe center, located at 4219 S. Western in Oklahoma City.

Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia Fraternity is the nation’s oldest and largest music fraternity. The activity is part of the Mills Music Mission, a national philanthropy honoring the fraternity’s founder by reenacting his own charity in the hospitals of Boston, Massachusetts over a century ago.
