The Mission of Delta Omicron International Music Fraternity
is to promote and support excellence in music and musicianship.
The Creed of Delta Omicron
This truth comes to us more and more, the longer we live, that in what field, or in what uniform, or with what aims we do our duty, matters very little; or even what our duty is, great or small, splendid or obscure, only to find our duty certainly and somewhere, somehow do it faithfully, makes us good, strong, happy and useful, and tunes our lives into some feeble echo of the life of God.--Phillips Brooks
