Faculty and Staff
The Music Department at McMurry University is dedicated to being on the forefront of musical innovation and supporting the development of new repertoire by established and emerging composers. The McMurry New Music Project seeks to engage the worldwide musical community in premiering new works and promoting projects to be added to the active repertoire. The McMurry New Music Project will actively promote the winning composers via the competition website and will include a link to the composer’s personal website. Utilization of social media resources will include Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube with details about the winning submissions and professional quality recordings of winning works. All selected winning compositions will be professionally recorded in separate studio sessions with mastered recordings being released on Spotify and YouTube.
