Mike Moss Conducting Study Grant

The Mike Moss Conducting Fellowships. Directed to women and people of diverse ethnicity, these grants are an opportunity for professional development and enhancement and the opportunity to attend one of several leading symposiums across the country.

Named in honor of Dr. Myron D. Moss, music program director and associate professor at Drexel University’s Antoinette Westphal College of Media Arts & Design. Dr. Moss was a nationally known scholar for his work on African-American composers, specifically related to band repertoire. Moss conducted the Keystone Winds’ CD “Out of the Depths” devoted to works by Black composers. His University of Michigan Ph.D. dissertation, “Concert Band Music by African-American Composers, 1927-1998,” won the Fritz Thelen Award for the best doctoral dissertation worldwide on a concert band music subject written between 1999 and 2005. His band arrangement of Gabriel Fauré’s Chant Funéraire was recorded by the University of North Texas Wind Ensemble on a 2006 GIA release and has been played by elite groups across the country.
