The goal of the music+ campaign is to raise funds for the College of Music’s people, programs and initiatives, including through scholarships, community outreach, faculty research and program development.
Kedrick Terrell Armstrong is one of the students benefiting from scholarship support as he works toward a master’s in orchestral conducting. Check out the following video of Kedrick’s recent rehearsal with the CU Philharmonia Orchestra and see how your gift can support students' daily lives:
As a conductor, Kedrick uses joy and curiosity for all music to foster understanding and fellowship within diverse communities. He has conducted the Chicago Opera Theater and Knox-Galesburg Symphony and is an alumnus of the Chicago Sinfonietta’s Project Inclusion Freeman Conducting Fellowship program, where he also served as assistant conductor during the 2018-19 season.
Kedrick is on the Board of Directors for the International Society for Black Musicians and uses his voice and platform as a Black conductor to advocate for the performance, publication and preservation of minority voices in classical music. He graduated from Wheaton College in Illinois with a Bachelor of Music degree in music history and literature, and he’s now working toward his master’s in orchestral conducting here at the College of Music.
We thank our donors for supporting students like Kedrick and empowering CU Boulder communities to create the future of artistry! To further support Kedrick and other students like him, consider making a gift to our music+ campaign by the end of the year.
