Mizzou New Music Initiative seeks new managing director

The University of Missouri School of Music is looking for a new managing director for the Mizzou New Music Initiative (MNMI).

The managing director is responsible for administering all of MNMI’s various programs, which include the Mizzou International Composers Festival, the Creating Original Music Project (COMP), the Missouri Composers Orchestra Project (MOCOP), and more.

The job begins on August 1, 2016, and offers a competitive salary and full benefits package. It is a full-time, 12-month faculty position with at least 75% administrative duties and potential for up to 25% teaching, depending on the applicant’s area of specialty.

Applicants must have previous administrative and teaching experience in a music-related field, and excellent interpersonal and organizational skills. A master’s degree in arts administration is strongly preferred, but those with DMA, PhD or MM degrees in music fields also will be considered.

The new managing director will be the permanent replacement for William J. “Billy” Lackey, who had held the position since 2009 but left Mizzou in March to become vice president of programs for the American Composers Forum in St. Paul, MN. Drew Worden, a graduate of the Eastman School of Music who has been serving as interim managing director since March, has taken a job at the New England Conservatory of Music beginning with the Fall 2016 semester.
