Harmony Ball leads to a Sinfonian proposal
by Andrew Owen

Brandi Ward playing the keyboardOn Friday, February 27, 2009, the chapter held its formal, called the Harmony Ball, at Stafford's on Main in Drew, Mississippi.  The party's entertainment was Brandi Lyle Ward (pictured right), who kept the evening very enjoyable and inviting.

The formal was open to the members and dates of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia and Mu Phi Epsilon.  Those who attended the party enjoyed either a delicious shrimp alfredo, a well-prepared country fried steak, or a scrumptious vegetarian dish.  The appetizer was a plate of fried green tomatoes, and the dessert was a rich bread pudding.

Brothers and party-goers enjoyed Ward's playing and even allowed brothers to entertain the party with "beat-box theater," where a brother (Brothers Joe Raymond and Geoffrey Latham, specifically) would tell a funny story, accompanied by some beat-boxers and with two brothers acting out the story.

Near the end of the evening, Brother Joe Raymond proposed to Miss Amanda Gill with the chapter singing a special version of the Phi Mu Alpha Serenade to a Girl.  The chapter changed the words of the end of the song to, "To the sweetheart of Joe B. Raymond, we pledge his love in song, and with this ring he asks you to be his bride..."  At this point, she said, "Yes," and the chapter finished the song.  It proved to be a very memorable night for all who attended.
