Welcome to the blog of the Mizzou New Music Summer Festival.

Here, you’ll find information on the festival, the participating composers and musicians, the Mizzou New Music Initiative, and much more.

The charter members of our blogging team are William J. “Billy” Lackey,  Admissions and Publicity Coordinator for the University of Missouri School of Music (and a composer himself) and Dean Minderman, a Mizzou alumnus, musician and music journalist based in St. Louis.  We’ll add more contributors as we go, including live blogging during the festival from the eight emerging composers whose work will be featured this year.
