Concert donations will go to the UTSA Office of Student Activities, which is collecting funds raised by UTSA student organizations for hurricane relief. One check from the Office of Student Activities on behalf of the student organizations will be forwarded to the American Red Cross.
Phi Mu Alpha, a social music fraternity, is the largest and oldest music fraternity in the nation.
