Each year since 2005, the MU School of Music has put on a concert hosted by the chancellor. This year's version of the Chancellor's Art Showcase is next Monday, April 13. For the 2015 version, the school's Director Julia Gaines has cast a wider net for the concert including for the first time student art from MU scholars creating outside the School of Music.

Earlier this fall, MU junior Trey Makler was named the winner of the 2015 Sinquefeld Composition Prize, an award granted to the best work by an MU School of Music composition student. On this episode of Thinking Out Loud, we talk with Makler about his creative process, with his professor about what makes the award-winning piece work, and with the director of the MU School of Music who explains how the school is teaching more these days about the business of music. You'll also hear Makler's award-winning piece 'Elysium' on this week's Thinking Out Loud.
