Grand Center Dubs UMSL Professor a “Visionary”
For the ninth annual Visionary Awards, Grand Center, an arts and entertainment district in St. Louis, sought women artists who inspired the community. Among the nominees was Barbara Harbach, a composer and professor of music at the University of Missouri-St. Louis. Harbach will be recognized as a 2011 Visionary Awards honoree in May. Harbach conceptualized and put together the Women in the Arts multi-venue festival that celebrates women artists from past and present. Several of her recordings have also been released on CD and have been staged in New York City.
