Kappa Zeta Chapter
Kappa Kappa Psi is a coeducational fraternal organization for students involved in band and other instrumental music ensembles. Our primary purpose is to operate as a student service and leadership recognition society in order to assist the Director of Bands in developing leadership, musicianship, and enthusiasm required for a successful band program. Our goals are to provide the band not only with organized and concentrated service activities, but also to give our membership valid and wholesome experiences in organization, leadership and social contacts. The honorary nature of membership means that the Brothers strive to uphold a level of excellence in representing and serving the band, its departments of music, its sponsoring institution, and the cause of band music in the nation’s colleges and universities.
The Kappa Zeta Chapter was rechartered at Wake Forest University in May 2010. With members involved in a wide variety of ensembles and majors in nearly every department on campus, the Kappa Zeta chapter of Kappa Kappa Psi is a diverse group of students who share a common passion for music and a desire to serve musical ensembles.
Musical Empowerment at Wake Forest University serves children in Winston-Salem whose families would not otherwise have access to music lessons. Wake Forest University students are paired with children who attend Speas Elementary School for free, weekly 40 minute, one-on-one music lessons and mentorship. Our program provides free instruments, music books, teacher workshops, and trainings to participants, as well as any other resources that may improve the quality and value of lessons. Lessons take place in classrooms at Speas Elementary School.
The Department of Music also hosts regular rehearsals and performances for the following student-run groups.
