Sound of Art

Each year beginning in 2010, the Mizzou New Music Initiative partners with an institution in the St. Louis area to present newly written, site-specific works by Mizzou student composers performed by the Mizzou New Music Ensemble. The “Sound of Art” series aims to bring new music beyond the concert hall and to connect with the St. Louis community through unconventional presentations and venues.
