      Press Release
      Delta Omicron International Music Fraternity

      Three music students at the Cincinnati Music Conservatory founded Delta Omicron in 1909. For over a hundred years, as a professional fraternity our purpose has been to create and foster fellowship through music; to give music students an opportunity to meet with one another and, by personal contact and exchange of ideas, to broaden the individual outlook; to strengthen a devotion and loyalty to Alma Mater; to develop character and leadership; to encourage the highest possible scholastic attainment, excellence of individual performance and appreciation of good music; to give material aid to worthy music students; to manifest interest in young musicians entering the professional world; to promote local, national, and international music and musicians; to further the work of aspiring composers; to stimulate appreciation of good music at the community level; to advance high ethical standards of professional conduct in the music world; to encourage understanding of the cultures of all nations; and to do any and all things conducive to the service, betterment and ultimate welfare of musicians. Delta Omicron is also a founding member of the Professional Fraternity Association which supports over 100,000 collegiate members to uphold professional standards of practice on campuses across the United States.

      Through the Delta Omicron Foundation, our philanthropic arm, we support and promote music and musicians through educational grants for music study; composer commissioning; awards for musical accomplishments; subsidies for publications and programs promoting music; and national and international music endeavors.

      We are bemused at the coincidence between the names of the various covid-19 variants and our music fraternity. We do not anticipate any change to the work we do. Delta Omicron International Music Fraternity is concerned for everyone’s safety and health. We encourage everyone to get the vaccine, follow CDC guidelines, and continue to support the arts in your community.

      Donations to Delta Omicron can be made through our website, https://www.delta-omicron.org. If you are a member, please reach out to the executive office. We’d love to hear from you. Donations to the Foundation can be made through the Foundation website, https://www.dofoundation.org/index.html. If you are interested in establishing a chapter of Delta Omicron at your local college, or an alumni chapter in your area please contact the executive office.

      IMPORTANT UPDATE - Please Note and Save the Date

      Delta Omicron Triennial Conference 2022
      July 27-30, 2022
      Norfolk, Virginia

      The national board is concerned for the safety of our members. Although the vaccine is beginning to roll out across the country, the board has decided to err on the side of caution and postpone our conference to 2022. The good news is that we were able to move the date without incurring a financial penalty, and we’ll be able to stay in the same hotel and conference center in Norfolk, Virginia. The new conference dates are July 27-30, 2022. Please mark your calendars and plan on joining us for a great reunion of brothers and sisters in Delta Omicron with exciting live music performances and our composition competition winner.

      Please consider a conference sponsorship. You can sponsor anything from a full day of conference to a meal to nametags. Contact President Kimberly Martin-Boyd for more information. We appreciate your support. Also consider applying to perform in the alumni or collegiate recital. We love hearing members perform. Contact Music Adviser Brenda Dannewitz for more information. As you return to shopping and maybe even an outdoor flea market, keep an eye out for fun music-related items to bring to the silent auction. And, keep working on those chapter scrapbooks for the scrapbook contest.
