Band organizations celebrate 50th anniversary

Kappa Kappa Psi and Tau Beta Sigma celebrated their 50th anniversaries March 11 with a picnic at MacGregor Park.

"We are the largest continually running organization on campus," said Kappa Kappa Psi member Tristan Cruttenden. Both the fraternity and Tau Beta Sigma, its sister sorority, are service organizations that promote the existence and welfare of the Cougar band and music programs.

Following the picnic in the park, four representatives from the chapters led a tour of the UH campus "(highlighting) new buildings and landmarks on campus for those who have not been here for a while," Cruttenden said.

He said the tours would also point out the band memorial, placed near the Moody Towers to mark the Cougar Marching Band's original practice field.

A reception was held at the Moores School of Music after the tours, proceeds from which will help fund an ensemble contest in May. Both chapters raise money to invest in new musical instruments and other necessary items.

For more information on the chapters, call Cruttenden or Chris Foster at (713) 743-9791.
