Creating the 21st Century Musician

The 21st-Century Musician Initiative is a complete re-imagining of the skills, tools and experiences necessary to create musicians of  the future instead of the past—flexible, entrepreneurial musicians that find diverse musical venues and outlets in addition to traditional performance spaces, develop new audiences and utilize their music innovatively to impact and strengthen communities.

Living Composers

Interaction with living composers provides a fresh and insightful perspective on the modern musical world. This year, DePauw welcomes Tony Award-winning Broadway composer Adam Guettel and Grammy Award-winning composer John Corigliano.
