Mizzou New Music Initiative

The Mizzou New Music Initiative is an array of programs intended to position the University of Missouri School of Music as a mecca for composition and new music.

The MNMI 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.

The Mizzou New Music Initiative’s programs include:

Undergraduate Composition Scholarships
Mizzou New Music Ensemble Graduate Assistantships
Mizzou International Composers Festival
Creating Original Music Project (COMP)
Composer Connection (a distance-learning initiative)
