The University of Missouri offers a wide array of classes in composition, a forum to collaborate with artists working in various mediums, projects to engage the community in the creative process, and numerous opportunities for students to have their works performed on and off campus. The graduate New Music Ensemble is dedicated to performing works of student composers studying at MU. Our annual Sinquefield Composition Prize gives one of our students the opportunity to have a work for large ensemble performed at the annual Chancellor's Concert. 

In addition, we have a Student Composers Concert each spring, a Composers Forum to exchange ideas, and a Society of Composers, Inc. student chapter to build connections with other composition programs across the country.
