In 1982, on the campus of Howard University, 19 women from the marching and concert bandscame together to express interest in bringing Tau Beta Sigma to The Mecca. These women workedhard for 2 years under the graces of our big sister chapter, Beta Eta – University of Maryland,and on February 19, 1984, the 172nd chapter of Tau Beta Sigma was installed and a legacy began.
Thirty years later, the Elegant Divas of Eta Delta Chapter hold true to the ideals of Tau Beta Sigma.Serving all of the University Bands and ensembles throughout the year, the work never stops.Programs such as the Sisters of Showtime (SOS) Mentor Program, Trick or Treat for Canned Goods, working with local high schools, Sisters Day at the Game, ushering for events and concerts, and making those TBS specials to feed the band are just some of the many things that keep our light shining.
Our sisterhood is strong and comprised of women from around the globe, Eta Delta boast scholars invarious majors. With lawyers, doctors, scientist, teachers, and more, we are just beginning a long road of Talent, Beauty, and Scholarship. The future is bright and we will proudly continue to serve the bands and promote women in the band profession. We are Eta Delta!
