Public university in the Midwest for 18 years running (U.S. News & World Report)
Our composition studio, The Mostly Live Composers Society, regularly brings guest composers to campus. The group is also active in our annual New Horizons Music Festival, which involve a composer-in-residence. Other student groups, such as Phi Mu Alpha and Sigma Alpha Iota, also occasionally sponsor composer visits.
Here are some of the composers who have visited Truman to share their craft and mentor students:
