Tau Beta Sigma is continuing the tradition of supporting the Arkansas Tech Band of Distinction through the exciting transition of direction as they welcome new Director of Bands Mr. Christopher Anderson.
Tau Beta Sigma, a national honorary band sorority, advocates service with the primary purpose of helping the band achieve greatness. As members of the band, members of Tau Beta Sigma are personally interested and motivated to serve however they can.
Throughout the year, Tau Beta Sigma does anything and everything to assist the band. The ladies attend rehearsals with a positive attitude to boost morale, purchase equipment, store and organize uniforms and organize spirit weeks.
“As a chapter, we are extremely excited about the changes that are taking place within our band and about getting to know new members of the band while our chapter grows,” Christina Koch, president of the organization, said.
The girls work closely with Kappa Kappa Psi, a fraternity for men who are in band, to host events and prepare for game days.
The ladies of Tau Beta Sigma spend a great deal of time working on projects. They serve as counselors for the Arkansas Tech Band Camps and organize the annual ATU Band 5K Race every spring as a fundraiser.
As a service organization, a significant amount of time is spent teaching children about the arts. Tau Beta Sigma hosts Girl Scout Day to help local troops earn their music badge. The annual Kid’s Concert invites area fourth graders to campus to learn about instruments and joining band in the future.
Additionally, Tau Beta Sigma cleans up a portion of the road for Adopt-A-Highway, and works with the Junior Auxiliary Charity Ball at the Boys and Girls Club.
To become a member of Tau Beta Sigma, students must be enrolled in band and have a 2.5 grade point average.
