Celebrating the School of Music Faculty

The Millikin School of Music will begin its yearlong celebration honoring the work of five retiring faculty members occurring at the end of the 2018-19 academic year. Each of these individuals has served an essential role in the success of programs at Millikin for more than thirty years. And, like most musicians, they have played an integral role in our community through their performances at important social activities, including holiday celebrations, weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, corporate functions, and the like. So, throughout this year, we ask that you join in celebrating the careers of these five musicians, scholars and teachers by attending one of their remaining performances.
