MU Initiative Supports Aspiring Composers
In November 2009, Jeanne and Rex Sinquefield donated almost $1 million over four years to the University of Missouri-Columbia to help create the Mizzou New Music Initiative, a program to educate the next generation of composers. The donation will help make the New Music Initiative one of the best-funded programs of its kind in the nation. The money will go toward scholarships and prizes for composition competitions. The program hopes to attract talented graduate and undergraduate students.Posted on Mar 07, 2011.
