Kappa Kappa Psi is a National Honorary Band Fraternity, founded on the campus of Oklahoma A&M College in 1919, and to date, over 50,000 students have dedicated themselves to strengthening their bands through individual and group service projects. The chief aim of Kappa Kappa Psi is to assist the Director of Bands in developing the leadership and enthusiasm within the band, while giving the band organized service activities and providing our membership with organization, leadership, and social contacts.
The Beta Omicron chapter of Kappa Kappa Psi at Arizona State University was founded in 1949, and since then has served the Sun Devil Bands while being recognized as one of the top chapters in the nation. Located on a campus with a nationally ranked School of Music and within a community that embraces the arts, our organization has had the opportunity to lend our hand to many efforts. We have worked with The Academy Drum & Bugle Corps, ABODA, and the Phoenix Symphony, hosting receptions and raising funds to put to use in the School of Music, helping to organize and run ASU Band Day, and assisting with a lot of the behind-the-scenes work that helps our band program run smoothly.
Beyond service, there is also a social aspect within our Fraternity that we also promote within the band. With events like a Band Camp Barbeque, post-game socials, laser tag, and ice skating, we are always looking for ways to make our band family stronger.
You don’t have to be a former Drum Major, or first chair on your instrument to become a part of Kappa Kappa Psi, a desire to serve the Sun Devil Bands is all that is needed.
