About the Mizzou New Music Initiative

The Mizzou New Music Summer Festival is just one part of the Mizzou New Music Initiative, which brings together a diverse array of programs intended to position the University of Missouri School of Music as a leading center in the areas of composition and new music.

The Initiative is the direct result of the generous support of Dr. Jeanne and Mr. Rex Sinquefield, and the Sinquefield Charitable Foundation. The Sinquefields’ vision is to create an incubator for the composition and performance of new music, and to position Missouri as a major center for the music of tomorrow.

In addition to the Festival , the Initiative includes undergraduate composition scholarships, New Music Ensemble graduate assistantships, the Sinquefield Composition Prize, the Creating Original Music Project, and Composer Connection, a distance-learning program that lets composers connect with and receive instruction from a graduate student in composition at MU.
