Music

We are all about music in Mu Beta Psi. The purpose of our fraternity is to encourage and facilitate music at Michigan Tech and the surrounding communities.

“To honor those outstanding men and women who have devoted their time and efforts to the musical organizations at the educational institutions of the respective Chapters.” – The first purpose of Mu Beta Psi

Mu Beta Psi is dedicated to serving our musical community. As members of the music organizations and Michigan Tech, we give back to them by offering our time and services. We host concerts, gift scholarships, feed bands, move equipment, usher concerts, organize libraries, and so much more for the music programs at MTU, local high schools, The Calumet Theatre, and more!
