Distinguished Concerts International New York has named UMKC Conservatory Professor Emeritus Eph Ehly as its Educator Laureate.

Named "one of the most sought-after choral conductors/clinicians" by the American Choral Directors Journal, Eph Ehly is renowned as a conductor, author, and lecturer.

DCINY's maestro and Conservatory alum Jonathan Griffith, the recent winner of the 2014 American Prize in Conducting, notes, "Dr. Ephy Ehly has been a major influence in my life, not only musically, but also personally.  Much of who I am today as a conductor goes back to the early days of my doctoral studies at the Conservatory of Music [and Dance] at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, and specifically with my daily contact with Dr. Ehly.  It is a sincere privilege to honor this wonderful and giving musician and human being."
