Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia is the world’s oldest and largest secret national fraternal society in music. The Nu Upsilon chapter operates as a music honorary on Hillsdale’s campus.
The Men of Phi Mu Alpha serenade women’s residences and sorority houses each semester, performing Electric Serenades in the fall and Acoustic Serenades in the spring. Phi Mu Alpha also produces a Christmas concert, an American Music Concert, periodic Coffeehouse performances, and the wildly-popular Battle of the Bands every year. Members of Phi Mu Alpha play in every major Hillsdale College music ensemble, and perform in many popular student bands.
