Missouri Summer Composition Institute

The Missouri Summer Composition Institute is an exciting opportunity for some of Missouri’s young composers to come together for one week of learning and interacting with other creative minds. Participants will receive composition lessons from MU faculty and compose a piece to be premiered at the end of the week by members of the Khemia Ensemble.

The Institute is open to students entering grades 9-12 and entering college freshmen. Sixteen composers will be selected to participate. The institute fee includes seven nights in a double room in one of Mizzou’s newest residence halls and meals.
