Welcome

The mission of Mu Phi Epsilon is to provide service to others through the art of music; to develop and nurture the potential leadership qualities of its members; to promote scholarship; and to encourage loyalty, inspiration and the very highest level of musicianship attainable. In its endeavor to share these gifts, it has gained status as a non-profit organization, which seeks to help young musicians who have taken on the serious undertaking of the study of music.

The New York City Alumni Chapter of Mu Phi Epsilon is committed to supporting its members as performing artists and presents concerts each year at Tenri Cultural Institute in Greenwich Village. This year will mark our fourteenth season at Tenri.

The NYC chapter currently pledges an annual grant to music schools in the New York area to provide tuition support for young, gifted musicians who demonstrate a significantly strong commitment to their course of study. Scholarship winners are presented in recital on the annual Founder’s Day concert. Each year we present one member in a solo recital as the chapter’s Distinguished Artist, and our year-end Artists in Recital features the chapter’s performing artists. All proceeds from Mu Phi Epsilon concerts are applied directly to the scholarship fund.

Mu Phi Epsilon, America’s oldest co-ed music fraternity, was originally founded as a Musical Alumni Sorority in Cincinnati in 1903 and the New York Chapter was founded in 1920. In 1977, Mu Phi Epsilon was reorganized as a co-educational Professional Music Fraternity and has since grown into an international organization with more than 75,000 members worldwide. Membership now includes over 70 alumni chapters with representative performers from every major musical institution throughout the world and is further augmented by over 100 collegiate chapters in the United States, the Philippines, and Canada. Among them are included: The Julliard School of Music, the Eastman School of Music, Indiana University, the New England Conservatory, the Peabody Institute, Lawrence University, Northwestern University, Boston University, the University of Maryland, and the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor.

FOUNDER’S DAY CONCERT


big_flyer

Greetings!

You will find the flyer for this season’s first concert above, which will take place on December 12, 2016. Click on flier above for a larger pop up of photo.

All of our recitals take place at Tenri Cultural Institute and begin at 7:30 p.m.

This first concert is of particular interest to many of our audience members primarily because we present our annual scholarship winners. This year we are particularly pleased to present two fine young artists – both students at the Bloomingdale School of Music. The program is a very exciting one comprised of works by well known composers from the Baroque and Romantic eras. Please see the flyer below, as well as the dates of the two other concerts we will be presenting at Tenri in 2016. We hope to see you at the concert.
