Dear Brother, Thank you. It is your generous support that allows me to come before you and report that the Sinfonia Educational Foundation continues to impact the lives of our brothers. We were able to grant even more dollars this year than last year. We added two new energetic board members to the Board of Trustees. As we get ready to celebrate the Power of Music at our largest National Convention in history this summer, the Convention Ensembles Program continues to grow as we add a string orchestra to the jazz band, wind ensemble, and men’s chorus. Your support has allowed us to more than double the amount of travel grants for this program. One of our priorities is always to increase the number of brothers involved in supporting these programs. I am happy to say that we have seen some success here with an increase of 30% in our donor base from last year. We continue to look for efficient ways to increase the amount of funds available for programs while also looking towards the long-term health of Sinfonia by gradually growing the endowment. Our mission has never been more clear. The Foundation and Fraternity are working more closely than ever before to achieve Sinfonia’s vision. As we increase the funding of these programs, more and more brothers are asking for support. We had a record number of applicants for scholarships and travel grants, illustrating that our work is never done. The Fraternity is preparing to launch some exciting new initiatives at this Convention and the Foundation will be right there to help. The SEF continues to be an integral part of supporting the Fraternity’s efforts to develop future leaders in music. The Board is always exploring different ways to increase this support. With your help, Sinfonia will continue to change lives with the Power of Music. If you have not been an active donor, I urge you to join us in this movement. I thank you all for your loyalty and the generous commitments you have made to our efforts as we continue to enrich the lives of collegiate Sinfonians and advance music in America. Fraternally,

Derek J. Danilson President, Sinfonia Educational Foundation

Foundation Scholarships Awarded For decades, the Sinfonia Educational Foundation has given thousands of dollars in scholarships each year to deserving collegiate Sinfonians. To date, over a half million dollars have been awarded to brothers as they work to complete their studies and become the next generation of leaders and supporters of music. Your generosity continues to make this program possible as we selected six excellent submissions from a record number 40+ applications this year:

Dengler

Fleming

Rutledge

$5,000 SEF Scholarship Paul Dengler, Rho Upsilon (Temple) ’09

“Since freshman year, Sinfonia has been an invaluable part of my college experience. The friendship shared between us brothers has been a blessing for which I will be always grateful. I am thrilled then knowing that Phi Mu Alpha has been able to support me financially just as it has personally.The money graciously provided by the Sinfonia Educational Foundation will be well spent as I continue my undergrad at Temple, working towards a degree in Music Education/Jazz Studies. Musicians and teachers alike know how much some extra money can help, and I could not be more appreciative of this scholarship.Thank you SEF for supporting music and the brothers of Phi Mu Alpha!”

$2,500 SEF Scholarship John Fleming, Beta Iota (Albion) ’12

“As with many college students paying their way through school, the last few years have certainly not been easy. Any amount of money used to help continue an education, no matter the amount, is extremely helpful, and for that I am grateful to the Sinfonia Educational Foundation! I am also extremely grateful to all of those that contribute to the SEF, allowing it to enrich the lives of collegiate Sinfonians and advance music in America every year. I look forward to another year filled with brotherhood and music as well as to National Convention this summer!”

$1,000 SEF Scholarship Brad Rutledge, Gamma Pi (California State-Fresno) ’08

“When I started as a colonial member in the Gamma Pi chapter of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia, I had no idea what to expect from the fraternal experience ahead of me. Though there were occasional hardships and struggles, Sinfonia has been one incredible surprise after another. I cannot describe in words the many opportunities I have been afforded by this fraternity, let alone how it has changed me to become the man I am today. To be awarded a scholarship from the Sinfonia Educational Foundation is beyond my expectations and I will forever be grateful for this sincere generosity.”

Crowhurst

Weaver

Patzlaff

$1,000 Patrenos Scholarship Julian Crowhurst, Nu Psi (Shenandoah) ’10

“Sinfonia has improved my life in more ways than I can express. Perhaps one of the most notable effects is that it has helped me become a man and musician of stronger character and confidence. Phi Mu Alpha has granted me leadership opportunities that I could not have received elsewhere. I am scheduled to graduate in the Spring of 2013, and hope to go on to graduate school, where I will pursue a Master’s degree in music composition. As of now, I hope to obtain my doctorate and teach within a university system or compose film and media scores. To the generous donors of the Sinfonia Educational Foundation, thank you so much for supporting the Sinfonia Educational Foundation and in turn, the many collegiate Sinfonians who receive scholarships each year. This scholarship will assist me tremendously in achieving my goals and reaching my highest musical potential.”

$1,000 Lowe Scholarship William Weaver, Omicron Omega (Arkansas State) ’03

“Because of this scholarship I am able to continue to pursue an advanced degree that will allow me to continue my mission statement on the collegiate level. My plans are to complete an educational specialist degree in community college teaching with an emphasis in music education then move on to a PhD in either music education or ethnomusicology so that I am able to teach at the collegiate level and spend the rest of my life as a music educator and hopefully a leader in Sinfonia. I would like to thank the SEF for the assistance with reaching my goal so that I might better fulfill Sinfonia’s noble Object and my own personal mission statement.”

$500 Delta Iota Scholarship John Patzlaff,Theta Nu (Northern State) ’09

“Sinfonia has been a part of the driving force that has propelled me through college. Through the membership in this Brotherhood, I discovered a deeper understanding of music’s power in our world. I am also proud to know many wonderful brothers throughout this great nation. I cannot express the amount of gratitude I feel for Phi Mu Alpha, and my continuation to be the best musician and person I can be will reap many benefits to all people around me.”

Sinfonia Strings Added to Convention Ensembles Program “I performed in the Wind Ensemble at the 1997 National Convention and have always hoped to create more opportunities for Sinfonians to share their gifts of music with one another and showcase their talents for the community at each major event. I am so glad to see this take shape.”

F

or the third time, the Sinfonia Educational Foundation has worked hand in hand with the Fraternity to continue to expand the Convention Ensembles Program. Started in 2006, the Sinfonia Winds performed under the baton of former Trustee Colonel John Bourgeois for the over 400 attendees of the National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio. In addition to the direct support for the program, the Sinfonia Educational Foundation also provided travel grants to participants in the ensemble. The program expanded in 2009 as we featured three all-Sinfonian ensembles in concert: Sinfonia Winds, the Men of Song Chorus, and the 1898 Jazz Orchestra. Over 100 Sinfonians took part in the opportunity as ensembles rehearsed each morning and were led by a renowned Sinfonian clinician. Public performances by each group before a record crowd of over 600 were a highlight of the Convention. After this Convention, the SEF created a fund to directly support this program. And the 2012 National Convention, true to the theme “The Power of Music,” will have more music than ever before.

Derek Danilson

New to our lineup of musical opportunities this year is our orchestra. In addition to the Men of Song Chorus, 1898 Jazz Orchestra, and the Sinfonia Winds, we can ensure that every musician has an opportu-

nity to become involved. The SEF has also expanded the Travel Grants Program for this event, providing 14 brothers with over $5,500 to take advantage of the Convention Ensembles Program.

This summer’s National Convention will feature a new commissioned work that will add to this rich legacy of Sinfonian music. We’re thrilled to announce that the Sinfonia Winds will be premiering a piece by David Holsinger, Beta Mu (Central Methodist) ’64 at this summer’s Convention. Brother Holsinger, who is Director of the Wind Ensemble at Lee University, is a nationally renowned composer and his Sinfonian Fanfare was written specifically for our Convention ensemble. The Fraternity’s history of commissioned works is one that stretches back decades. Many of these are due to grants from the Sinfonia Educational Foundation. Some of the biggest names in American music have written pieces specifically for or about Sinfonia. We’re proud to add to that legacy by performing the premiere of Holsinger’s work. The 2012 Convention offers an unprecedented opportunity for brothers to participate in, and enjoy, a variety of musical experiences. We hope to see you in Orlando in 2012 to witness The Power of Music.
