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 individuals 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 of 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 various other activities for the music programs at MTU, local high schools, The Calumet Theatre, and more!

We love helping out!

If you have a musical event or organization in the Houghton/Hancock area that needs a helping hand, please contact our music committee chair by using our contact page.

Here are some services we’ve performed in the past. We’re always looking to expand our list.

  • Concert ushering
  • Setup and clean up for events
  • Event advertisement
  • Equipment transportation
  • Music library organization
  • Our own musical talents
