After nine years of exceptional management of the University of Missouri School of Music, Dr. Julia Gaines (GMLC Class of 2018 and current member for the GMLF Board of Directors) has announced that she will step down as Director of the University of Missouri School of Music, effective July 1, 2023. She will be returning to her role as a faculty member in the School of Music.
Julia says that she has served three, 3-year terms and it’s time. “Its been a wild nine years with lots of ups and lots of downs. I enjoy my job and am at a good place in my life to make a transition. I’ll spend the next year on a research leave while my daughter is a senior in high school.”
Best wishes to Julia as she transitions and thank you to her for the tireless work she continues to do on behalf of Greater Missouri!
