Spring Semester Summary

As the semester concludes, we want to take a moment and reflect on all that has happened this spring!

First and foremost, we are so excited to celebrate 8 new sisters joining our chapter. We welcome them and look forward to seeing where their time in Epsilon Theta will take them.

We are also incredibly proud of our 3 graduating sisters. They have given so much to both our organization and the band, and we are sad to see them go, but happy to see them grow. We wish you the best wherever your path may lead you!

This semester has been busy, here at Epsilon Theta as we introduce our newest little sister chapter: Kappa Gamma, at the University of Georgia. We are so delighted with them for completing the process of chartering a new chapter and are excited to see what they do in the future.

Ringing in the New Chapter!

There was some serious spring cleaning happening here in Couch as we prepared for some renovations this summer. The building is getting an overhaul, but not before we, and our brothers in Kappa Kappa Psi, help to get it ready. We were busy cleaning up and clearing out different areas of the building to make it easier for the work to take place. We reorganized the marching band uniforms and moved them to storage, and gave our drum room a makeover with cleaning and some new shelves.

As the weather turned warmer, we were able to help around 50 Girl Scouts in the local Atlanta area earn their music badge. This year, we got to host Girl Scout Day in person. We are so thankful we could meet in person this year, as it means we could play for the girls live. In addition, we helped them learn about the rich history of music around the world. Then, we moved on to live demonstrations by sisters on their instruments. After seeing those instruments in action, the Girl Scouts could go around and hold the instruments to get a feel for them. Then, the players gave a brief performance of some fight songs, Thriller, Budweiser, and the Horse.

One of the exciting events from this semester was when we hosted Dr. Sara Womack as a part of our Women in Music Speaker Series. Dr. Womack is the current Fine and Performing Arts Coordinator for the Atlanta Public Schools. She received her Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees in Music Education from the University of Alabama, and her Doctorate of Music Education from the University of Georgia. She has taught at various elementary schools throughout Georgia and was an Adjunct Faculty Member for the University of Alabama. It was incredible to meet her and listen to her journey with music – thank you so much Dr. Womack!

For our last act, we hosted Georgia Day! This is an event where we invite our sisters around Georgia to come and enjoy the weather, each other’s company, and some games. Aside from Epsilon Theta, we also had sisters from UGA’s Kappa Gamma Chapter, Kennesaw’s Iota Psi Chapter. We also hosted brothers from Tech’s own Iota chapter, Kappa Mu at UGA, and Nu Mu at Kennesaw.

During this semester, we are proud to have earned both the Blue and Green Stripes! The Blue Stripe came from our Women in Music Speaker series when Dr. Sara Womack came and spoke with us. The Green Stripe came from our Crescendo Project, in hosting Girl Scout Day.
