The Mills Music Mission
The Mills Music Mission has been Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia Fraternity’s national philanthropy since 1998. During these missions, the Fraternity’s members go out to hospitals, nursing homes, schools, among other places, and spread the gifts of music and brotherhood by singing, playing musical instruments, talking to and connecting with residents, and giving out small gifts. The Mills Music Mission is the perfect vehicle to bring the Fraternity’s cause to life, to share and uplift others with the power of music and nurture brotherhood among all people.
The mission’s inception goes back to the Fraternity’s founder, Ossian Everett Mills. Brother Mills, starting in the 1880s in Boston, brought his fellow friends to hospitals and nursing homes each Easter and Christmas to perform music, recite poetry, and offering other arts in addition to handing out flowers, coining the act of service, “Flower Missions.” Brother Mills devoted significant amounts of his time to uplifting the souls of the less fortunate with the beauty and power of music. Today, the Fraternity continues the tradition of Father Mills by putting on Mills Music Missions around the country that affect thousands of people every year.
