Texas State's oldest singing group still growing

In 1947, a few men with a passion for singing came together to establish an acappella club at Texas State.

Almost 53 years later, the singing group has been transformed into Phi Mu Alpha, Texas State’s oldest active fraternity.

Kyle Day, music studies senior and president of Phi Mu Alpha, said tradition and music are still essential to the organization’s operations.

“It always had a lot of rich tradition—a lot of heavy musical references throughout it,” Day said. “It really grew and grew and grew throughout the ‘50s and ‘60s, but the 2000s is when it became the largest it’s ever been.”
