Tau Beta Sigma - Delta Delta

Tau Beta Sigma - Delta Delta The Delta Delta chapter of Tau Beta Sigma National Honorary Band Service Sorority was founded at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, on May 16, 1969.

We provide exceptional service to collegiate bands and promote equality and diversity, including empowering women in the band profession. We cultivate leadership, educational achievement, music appreciation and community development. We are located on the University of Massachusetts, Amherst campus. While providing service to The Minuteman Marching Band, we also serve the University Concert Band, Hoop Band, Wind Ensemble, Symphony Band, Jazz Ensemble, Marimba Band and many other University Musical Ensembles. We maintain excellent joint relations with the Epsilon Nu chapter of Kappa Kappa Psi.

Mission: Delta Delta is a diverse chapter of National Honorary Band Sorority, Tau Beta Sigma. The Chapter is dedicated to serving music at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst with 25 members strong. The Delta Delta chapter consistently aims to develop leaders, encourage enthusiasm within the marching band, and to fulfill as much of the band’s needs as possible. The chapter also aims to emphasize the quality and quantity of membership by ensuring a worthwhile experience of leadership, community, and service.

August Sister Feature! Shoutout to Zoe Stinson of Tau Beta Sigma - Delta Delta for her work in Haiti this past summer.

"My name is Zoë Stinson, I am a sophomore music major at UMass and a sister from Delta Delta. This past summer, I traveled to the village of Leogagne in Haiti in hopes of starting a music program for children. In Haiti, there is little opportunity for people to get ahold of instruments, let alone learn how to play them. However, with the help of another sister, Samantha O’Brien, we were able to gather enough resources to bring a music program to them. We stayed there a little over a week with many other students that were there for public health ordeals. Sam and I brought 15 instruments there, all of which were donated to my project by friends and family at home. I held an informal instrument drive via Facebook, and I made a few calls and visits to local musicians who also helped the cause tremendously. Transporting the instruments was no peach, we packed all of them into two very large suitcases, while Sam and I fudged the “2 personal bag” policy going onto the plane. All the instruments arrived in good condition and were ready to play. In the time that we stayed there, I was able to teach kids how to play and eventually donate the instruments to them. It was so rewarding to see the smiles appear on their faces as they learned to play twinkle twinkle little star, or Mary had a little lamb. The people were so gracious for these instruments; I was even given a thank you letter from one of the families. Many of us have had the opportunity of benefiting from music our whole lives. We have access to instruments, amazing teachers, and ensembles. This is something that I believe everyone deserves access to, as music is such an essential part of life. Music, after all, is a universal language, which allowed me to teach despite the language barrier. I hope to return to this village someday to continue my project, bring more instruments, more people, and more love." - Zoe Stinson, Delta Delta

Today’s Ad Staff Manager spotlight does to this season’s Band Aide Manager, Shayna Lillis! Shayna describes the responsibilities of band aides as, “During band camp the Band Aides help other staffs prepare for new members and the upcoming season by assisting in printing and laminating music, organizing uniforms for fittings, fitting band members for uniforms, and helping in any large projects. During the band season we assist in repairing uniforms, filming performances, transporting the med kit, distributing food, and anything else the band needs.” Other band aides include Julia Davis, and more to come!

Our field staff spotlight for today goes out to rising senior, Sam O'Brien! This is going to be Sam's first year on the flute field staff team. Sam's favorite memory is performing in the Rose Bowl Parade and seeing all the smiles on the faces of the UMass supporters along the parade route. Her piece of advice for incoming band members is, "Don’t be afraid to be yourself, this group of people is the most accepting community that you will ever come in contact with and you won’t regret opening up to them."

Wednesday’s field staff spotlight is going to Maddy Maciag! Entering her junior year with the trombone section, this will be Maddy’s second year on field staff. Maddy’s favorite UMMB memory was looking up at the crowd at her first Allentown performance, and some advice she has for new members is to “bring more socks and sunscreen than you think necessary (and maybe even flip flops for indoor rehearsals!)”

We, the Delta Delta chapter of Tau Beta Sigma, are so excited to announce our Sister’s candidacy for the District Vice President of Membership! Amanda has been a member of our chapter since going through Fall of 2015, and has served as our Treasurer, and currently, our Vice President of Membership. Most of her platform is based off of furthering Sisterhood both within and between the chapters, improving communication, and placing an emphasis on developing means to improve joint relations throughout the District. Amanda is chairing the Programs committee at NED Convention this year, and has proven herself a reliable and enthusiastic member of our organization. Amanda has provided her endless support in all of our endeavors, and therefore has been a driving force behind all of our successes.

It is with great sadness that the Delta Delta chapter informs you of the loss of our alumni sister, Lauren Tela. Lauren, a trumpet player from Montague, MA, became a sister in the fall of 2007 and has been an extremely devoted member of the sisterhood and the band ever since. May your eyes forever be filled with pride, Lauren.

If you feel so inclined, please share with us your memories of Lauren below in a comment for all to reminisce.
