About Our Organization
Tau Beta Sigma is an honorary service and leadership organization that serves college and university band programs through service projects, fundraisers, social events, and other projects designed to promote the welfare of those programs. The co-ed sorority established the Iota Alpha Chapter on April 21, 2001 to serve the Marist College Band. Tau Beta Sigma provides exceptional service to collegiate bands and promote equality and diversity, including empowering women in the band profession.
