|Jewell music program receives grant
March 6, 2009
The William Jewell College department of music has received one of the first Projects for Justice and Sustainability Grants through the College's Center for Justice and Sustainability.
The grant will allow the department to sponsor a choral competition project. The goal of the project is to solicit and select a choral music composition for public performance that has as its inspiration and text some connection to the concepts of justice and/or sustainability. The composer of the selected composition will receive a prize and will travel to campus for the final rehearsals. The selected composition will be performed by Jewell students in the choral studies program at the annual summit sponsored by the Center for Justice and Sustainability.
William Jewell College is committed to bringing together talented students and gifted faculty mentors within a vibrant community sparked by a rigorous and intentional liberal arts curriculum. A full range of personal and professional development experiences are presented by the selective national liberal arts college's location within the Kansas City metroplex of 1.5 million.
