Be it known that Tau Beta Sigma, National Honorary
Sorority for members of the college band, is an organization operating exclusively in the field of the college and university
bands, for the following purposes:
1. To promote the existence and welfare
of the collegiate bands and to create a respect and appreciation for band activities and achievements among the listening
2. To honor outstanding members of the band
through privilege of membership, in the Sisterhood, extended in recognition of musical achievement, demonstrated leadership,
and an enthusiastic approach to band activities.
3. To develop leadership through active
participation with the band, and through it, to strengthen those traits of conduct, thought, and idealism which characterize
the responsible membership of the band.
4. To encourage a close relationship between
collegiate bands and promote a high average of attainment by the performance of good music and selection of worthwhile projects.
5. To provide a meaningful and worthwhile
social experience for all engaged in collegiate band work, and to cooperate with other musical organizations and societies
in every manner consistent with our mutual purposes and those of the institution at which chapters are located.
