“Sing a hymn to old Sinfonia and to Upsilon Phi…”

The 55th Upsilon Phi Jazz Festival will be held on Saturday, February 24, 2024 in Baldwin Auditorium. This year’s festival will feature trumpet player, Ashlin Parker.

If you are a brother of the Upsilon Phi Chapter of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia at Truman State University, few things stir the spirit like the opening words to our Chapter Hymn. Composed by Dr. Tom Ritchie, a beloved brother and trusted mentor and adviser to the chapter in its earliest days, the Chapter Hymn captures the essence of our unique musical brotherhood. Whenever brothers congregate in purposeful duty or carefree revelry, whether the assembled number is four or forty, and regardless of age or station in life, its words and melody are sure to be on the hearts and minds of those present.

We invite you to find out more about our rich traditions and heritage, both as a national fraternity and a collegiate chapter, and to learn more about becoming a part of our musical brotherhood and the lifelong journey that is Sinfonia.

As an active chapter, our ranks include vocalists and instrumentalists, music and non-music majors alike. Meanwhile, the alumni of our chapter not only include performers and educators, but also businessmen, doctors, lawyers, community leaders, and professionals of all types. As individuals we each have a unique voice, but as brothers in Phi Mu Alpha we have the unparalleled opportunity — and obligation — to work together as a harmonious whole.

Hail Sinfonia!
