On January 22nd, 1942, Arthur D. Hill, chairman of the music department, wrote to Sinfonia's national headquarters expressing his interest in wanting Indiana State Teachers College to have an organization that could help advancing music in America. After letters and mimeographs Sinfonia had approved the start of a colony at Indiana State. On October 5th, 1947 the Gamma Omega Chapter of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia was founded with twenty men that exemplified everything that Sinfonia stands for. Since being found the Gamma Omega chapter has brought hundreds of men into this one of a kind brotherhood. It has fulfilled it's object by putting on over one hundred and fifty recitals and assisting the school of music as it can. In 1971 the Gamma Omega chapter took advance music in America to the next level by hosting it's first annual Indiana State Jazz Festival.
