DMA Composition Student Derek Jenkins Wins Research Grant


DMA composition student Derek Jenkins has been awarded a $7,000 grant from the UMKC School of Graduate Studies Research Grant Program.  

Derek's proposal is Bridging the Gap: Composing for Middle School, High School, and Collegiate Bands. He notes, "The concept is to write a multi-movement wind ensemble work and then re-imagine the piece for 1) a middle school band and 2) a high school band. The result is to have three pieces based on similar elements. Ideally, the three pieces will be able to be performed together in a massed band setting."
