Bracken Library Hosts Pledge Recital by Music Fraternities

On Thursday evening, January 17, 2008, the music fraternal organizations of Sigma Alpha Iota (ΣΑΙ) and Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia (ΦΜΑ) performed their annual pledge recitals to a crowd of more than 70 people in Bracken Library’s lobby.

Both Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia and Sigma Alpha Iota fraternities are dedicated to the development, support and promotion of excellence in musical performance as well as service to the community.

The pledge recital provided an opportunity for undergraduate student musicians to demonstrate their diverse and remarkable talents. A variety of musical genre was presented through performances of unaccompanied solos and mixed ensembles in Bracken’s acoustically vibrant lobby. Pledge recitals are usually performed in one of the classrooms at the School of Music and are only heard by other fraternity members and invited guests.

“Bracken Library was the perfect venue for this recital. It gave the public a chance to enjoy a variety of musical styles, everything from classical violin to didgeridoo solo,” said Linda Putman, Muncie Alumnae Sigma Alpha Iota Chapter President. “It was a great opportunity to experience the fraternities in action.”
