The Chi Omega Symphony has reflected the purposes of Chi Omega members since its composition in 1904 by Ethel Switzer Howard on the eve of her initiation into the Xi Chapter of Chi Omega at Northwestern University.

Chi Omega's symphony stands the test of time... it too represents a timeless choice.  Our symphony exemplifies goals to which Chi Omegas aspire.  Because Chi Omega is like a symphony- each individual, just like a single instrument, is unique and necessary.  It is when the individuals come together, just like an orchestra, that a symphony results.  It is important for each member of Chi Omega to be herself.  Each Chi Omega has individual talents to contribute to our sisterhood, but our chapter and Fraternity are most successful when the group comes together as a whole.
